EXPERIENCE A DAY OF FLY FISHING IN WILD NORTHERN NEW MEXICO
with Dave Wheelock
Create vibrant memories in beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico with a unique gallery tour and art workshop designed to leave you with a special “sense of place”.
Discover firsthand the solitude and beauty of northern New Mexico as you coax streambred trout to rise to your fly. Dave Wheelock is a 50-year resident of northern New Mexico who can deepen your understanding of the unique cultures, history, and landscapes we’ll encounter en route to our destination near Santa Fe. As a former professional coach Dave has the skills to get you on to a wild trout even if a fly rod is new for you.
You will experience all the elements - the sights, sounds, aromas, and more - of a secluded place where your guide fishes for his own enjoyment and replenishment. A reasonable amount of fitness and dexterity is required to fish the spectacular canyons we’ll visit. We will be “wading wet” unless you choose to pack in your waders.
Cost for a full-day outing is $200 with a limit of two for $300 and includes lunch at the river’s edge.
Rod, terminal gear, and flies included.
