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.
