Phil moved to Colorado in 4th grade, started fly
fishing when he was 11, and was instantly hooked.
Spending all his free time chasing Colorado trout has
made Phil extremely knowledgeable on our local trout
streams. Phil has a very good knack for adapting to
Colorado's ever-changing river conditions.
One of Phil's greatest assets on the river is his
unbelievable ability to spot trout. When he tells you
there is a trout in front of you, get ready!
Phil is currently studying history and secondary
education at the University of Northern Colorado.
Phil's other passion is ice hockey. He has played in
Colorado, Minnesota and Canada. His passion for
teaching has also led him to coach youth players.
Phil is currently the Greeley Youth Hockey director
When Phil was asked what he liked best about
guiding, here was his response: "I love being in the
outdoors and find nothing better than a day on the
river helping people learn about the sport."
Spend a day with Phil and you are sure to have a fun
day with memories to last a life time. You will definitely
have a guide who will work hard to make sure you
learn some tricks, catch fish, and have fun.

I just wanted to send a note of thanks for the
awesome trip Phil guided me on, south of Tarryall on
the Ute Trail river ranch section. I learned a ton,
caught some awesome trout (much bigger than in the
northeast, and much bigger than expected) and had a
great time. Phil was an excellent, patient guide, and a
great teacher. He also gave me some really good
advice about the next day on my own.
Chad and I had a great trip with Phil on Saturday,
The private land was perfect and we had an
unbelievable experience. Phil was patient with us and
an excellent guide. He did a phenomenal job putting
us on the trout and keeping us entertained while
catching some great fish. I look forward to going with
Colorado Trout Hunters again very soon.
Thanks for the great time,
Thanks so much Phil. I had a wonderful time and look
forward to my next fishing trip. Thanks for all the tips
Wow Phil! The pic's are AWESOME!
I had a great time and learned a ton of new stuff.
If you're ever in Pennsylvania, let me know. I'll roll out
the red carpet.
Had a blast with Phil! He is both knowledgeable and a
true professional. I will probably make this an annual
