Landon Mayer is a nationally reputed fly fishing guide living in the Colorado Springs, CO area, who calls calling the South Platte River where he started guiding thirteen years ago his home waters. He has been guiding on these waters for the past thirteen years, as well as guiding one year in Alaska.
Landon will be sharing techniques and secrets from his recently released book, Sight Fishing for Trout published by Stackpole Books. Passion and love for the sport of fly fishing is what motivates Landon. His success in catching trout is fueled by an addiction of pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment.

Note of the Day:
In the last pool of Ettrick, the water flowed by a steep bank, and, if you cast almost on to the further side, you were perfectly safe to get fish, even when the river was very low. The flies used, three on a cast, were small and dusky, hare’s ear and woodcock wing, black palmers, or, as Stoddart sings,
Wee dour looking hulks are the thing,
Mouse body and laverock wing.
