Our Director of Services, Jon Easdon, is looking forward to the opportunities that a new year, and a new season, has to offer.
In my opinion, we currently have the strongest group of Guides I’ve seen at Angler’s Covey. With another Guide School coming in April, I’m looking forward to potentially adding more talent to our team.
As Director of Services
I’m looking forward to implementing some new programs and support systems to help all of our Guides further develop. Each guide has their own skill sets, and I hope to have them hone those. And it’s important that they expand their skills – stretch themselves to tackle different challenges. My goal is to offer clinics so our guides can learn different techniques and learn from each other. Clinics, for example, will address topics like “stillwater strategies” and “Euro nymphing.” I want guides, particularly ones just beginning their careers, to build their confidence in guiding in multiple types of fly fishing. Working with our great guiding team this past year has inspired me to elevate all of our guides. I’m looking forward to helping them grow to the levels they want to achieve.
I think with our current offerings of guided trips (from couples trips to private water experiences), we can really expand our guided offerings on some of the resources we have. Guided Stillwater trips always pop to the top of the list for me, as most anglers do not realize how much fun stillwater fly fishing is. I’m looking forward to putting a ton of energy into that, as well.
And, I love networking. I’m looking forward to working with all of our corporate clients again. I am also excited to host new clients and build strong relationships through outdoor recreation experiences in our Pikes Peak region.
As a Guide, An angler, and a Dad
Each year I look forward to the puzzle that is fly fishing. Year after year, you gain knowledge to tackle new challenges. Most days, that knowledge pays off. On some days, though, all of that knowledge means nothing. I love that about fly fishing. I’m blessed to be a part of fly fishing and the fly fishing community. I am looking forward to spending as much time as possible (either guiding or fishing) on the water with amazing people.
