It’s been forever since I posted here, I know... But people that know me, know that I am not into promoting the guide service anymore. Over the last few years I have taken my existing customers fishing and that’s pretty much been it.
2019 was a tough year for me because I got very sick. To the point I couldn’t even guide and had to focus on gaining strength and just staying alive. I lost 45#’s during that struggle and albeit I had gained a lot of weight prior to getting sick, we all know I didn’t have a ton of weight to loose. Recovery was very slow but 2020 was supposed to be my comeback year and 2020 was... well.. self explanatory. I think the dictionary may later read 2020- a time to forget for everyone...
Anyhow, those two years of not really even being able to guide certainly changed my perspective on a lot of things. Long story short, I will not be guiding in 2021 at all. Not even taking the existing customers. My VIP family can contact me and we can go fishing together, no charge, but I’ll be fishing and it will not be treated like a guide trip at all! It would just be nice to stay in touch with these folks I’ve created awesome relationships with! I miss all y’all that’s for damn sure! They know who they are, I don’t have to tag them, heck most don’t even use facebook; bless their hearts... 🤣
This isn’t a goodbye for good from guiding. It’s a welcome break that will extend for an unknown amount of time.
There isn’t anyone currently permitted or even qualified to guide for tigers in NM so I won’t be making any referrals. I apologize if you had anticipated getting out this year. If you still hold a gift certificate from a trip previously donated I will still uphold those donations and appreciate you supporting those non profits!

I know it’s been a while. Just wanted to chime in and say hello and let everyone know there are ice fishing opportunities popping up. Some public, some private. Message me if you’re interested in scheduling something! During January and February I will be taking limited trips for ice fishing. You don’t need anything but some waterproof warm shoes and warm clothes! I have all the rest covered including hot food cooked for ya right on the ice!

12/25/2018

Merry Christmas to all our fishy friends and extended family! May 2019 be the best and fishiest year yet for all!! Thanks for fishing with me, I couldn’t make it happen without each and every one of you!

Happy to finally announce that I am now booking fly fishing trips for the San Juan River! Yes you read that correctly!Trips can be booked through Float'n Fish or by contacting FE Guides! Here’s a couple photos from a recent trip with some great customers that have turned into amazing friends. If you’re looking to fight off cabin fever let me know and I’ll get ya on the calendar! I do more exciting news to announce regarding this and other opportunities I’ve organized over the fall and early winter so far. Have a great weekend everyone!

It’s been real, a real blessing...
Hopefully this isn’t goodbye forever Cow Creek Ranch. I keep waiting to hear that someone is buying and keeping operations functioning... I know folks want to ice fish here this winter. If the ranch sells its very likely that won’t happen and there’s hardly any water open to fish anymore. Either way, this place is special and this young man made my final trip there memorable. 🙏 Thanks to everyone that fished there with me... #setSetSET #keeppressure #lethimrun #rodup #blessed #inthebag

The LAST CHANCE DISCOUNT is as low as it’ll go... No further discounts can or will be provided. This discount is possible because I’m taking money out of my profits. It is not the ranch offering a discount. I still pay your rod fees as usual but you save money and get the ranch pretty much to yourself! $450 for 2 and $350 for 1 angler. Includes private land access fee, lunch, rods, gear, flies, etc...
Tuesday this gentlemen told me he had never fly fished before... No problem, after some casting lessons he landed a bunch of big fat hard fighting fish like the one pictured here! Let’s make it happen for you!

LAST CHANCE & REDUCED RATE FOR COW CREEK RANCH!

With the calendar showing more and more open dates I want to get folks on the water before I start to go crazy without work... Sooooo I have a discount for everyone!
Cow Creek Ranch is closing down so if you’d like to go fishing at the ranch before they shut down, I’m offering a greatly reduced rate of $450 for 2 anglers or $350 for 1 angler in full day trips. That includes private land access fees, lunch, rods, flies, and instruction throughout the day. That’s well over $100 discount for a day trip.
Fishing is insanely good right now with a lot of fat healthy hard fighting fish being caught even as recently as yesterday.

10/29/2018

I have open dates this and next week if anyone wants to check Cow Creek Ranch off the bucket list before the chance slips away for good...

This young man was used to throwing lures in saltwater. To show him something more familiar than a fish taking down an indicator, I gave him a streamer and the smile says it all! He approved and immediately after started asking questions regarding throwing streamers at the saltwater fish he’s most familiar with. He’s hooked... Cow Creek Ranch

10/25/2018

Cow Creek Ranch is still open to customers but not for long. The ranch is soon closing to public access and being sold. Let’s go fish the ranch before we can’t ever again!

10/21/2018

I’d have a huge smile if I were lifting that beauty after a hard fought battle. Zach and his father Doc came back for more lip rippin! Thanks for spending time with me on the water Cow Creek Ranch gents!!

10/09/2018

Adios for now fish.. October is full but if you’re looking to get out in November I’m happy to get your trip scheduled!

DON’T let your LAST CHANCE TO FISH COW CREEK RANCH SLIP AWAY!!!!
You heard that right. If you haven’t already heard, this is the last season the ranch will be open to the public!!! If you want a chance to fish this amazing and special fishery jump on it now!
There’s a chance I will be able to take folks out for one last ice fishing season also but that’s still up in the air right now.

I just want to thank everyone that’s fished with me at the ranch going back to 2014. So many wonderful memories we will hold in our hearts... CCR holds a special place in my heart just as it does for MANY others. Once this season is over there will be no more Cow Creek Ranch fishing folks. Go fish now or never... 😟

Come enjoy the view yourself at Cow Creek Ranch!

Caught twice in a short period. By line, then net... If you’ve ever wondered why guides are so close to clients with a net under the fish in so many fish photos, then this post’s for you. Here’s a series of photos that shows exactly why. Caught in the net and then released healthy to fight another day. Cow Creek Ranch

These kiddos brought so much joy to my heart during our trip last week. Sure I taught them a bit about fishing, bugs, wild raspberries and so on...
But they taught me things also and gave me an even better gift. Mainly, a reminder to not stress while guiding and to enjoy all the small things in life. Keep it positive everyone! Friday is tomorrow! #kissesforthefishes Flyfish Cow Creek Ranch

Ya never forget your first fish, especially when it viscously attacks a dry fly! Cow Creek Ranch
