Danny Frank:
Professional Fly Fishing Guide
Colorado Trout Hunters Owner/Director

I have been fishing for as long as I can remember.  What
started as a hobby quickly turned into a passion that became
such an important part of my life.  I grew up in Northeastern
Ohio where I worked in the local fly shop,
Chagrin River
Outfitters, throughout high school.  My desire for year around
trout fishing led me to Colorado for college where I majored in
Environmental Science and Sustainability at the University of
Denver.  Clever scheduling allowed me to fish most days
throughout the week and guide for Tad Howard, the founder of
Colorado Trout Hunters.  

After school I guided part time while also working as an Aquatic
Biologist at Colorado Parks and Wildlife and as the Director of
Communications at Fishpond.  The past few years I returned to
guiding full time before becoming owner of Colorado Trout
Hunters in 2017.

I would love the opportunity to share my passion with you by
spending time together on the water. I take great pride in my
guiding and creating an experience you wont forget.  I enjoy
guiding anglers of all skill levels.  There is something special
about helping a beginner angler get their first fish on a fly and
to me it is equally enjoyable taking a seasoned fisherman and
“hunting” that trout of a lifetime.

In my rare free time, I am a big Ohio State fan and also help
run a fly fishing travel company,
Frigate Travel.

“I've been lucky enough to fish with some great guides all over
the world. Danny is about the fishiest guy I've ever met. He will
work his tail off to get his clients into fish. Highly recommend
getting a day on the water with him.”  - Mike R.

“Most amazing fish whisperer you will meet. He knows where
they are because they come to him! And you benefit. Great
fun!!” - Scott H.

“I went on my first flying trip ever with Danny Frank. He was
incredibly knowledgeable about the river as well as the fish who
lived in it. With his help my dad and I were hooking and netting
fish within half an hour of being on the river. I cannot wait to
book my next trip with him!” - Paige R.

“The best guide we have ever fished with!! His passion,
knowledge, fun nature makes for many fish, laughs, and a
perfect day!!!!” - Annie L
