COVID-19 Update and Protocol

We would like to express our sincere gratitude for all of our customers during this unprecedented period.  Your support of our guide services and retail store has been truly humbling, but it is the connection to each of you as friends that will prove most enduring.  If we are smart and patient, COVID-19 will pass.  We wish prudence, safety and the escape of the great outdoors for all.

This post will be updated with every shift of information during this uncertain time.  We are unconditionally open for business, but it is important for our customers to understand the adjustments in our methods and potential operational limitations in order to book guide services with confidence.  Transparency is key, because we are all in this together.


Telluride Angler fly shop

1)  Telluride Angler is open!  In-store traffic is limited 10 customers at a time. 

2) Telluride Angler’s deep inventory in hard goods will be a resource for anglers throughout the COVID-19 period.  

3) Information is power!  Consult with Rich, John, Parker and Jack by phone, email or chat 7-days-a-week.  

5) Telluride Angler has never been cleaner.  We disinfect our working areas multiple times daily and maintain strict and detailed COVID protocols.  Proceed with knowledge that we take the health issue very seriously, protecting both ourselves and our customers with rigid hygiene practices.
