Solitary Angler fly shop
Since 1983 Van Beacham, owner of the Solitary Angler, and his staff have been flyfishing guides in New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming to some of the least known, top secret waters anywhere. Over the years some of the places we used to guide have become more popular and overfished, spoiling the solitude and lessening the angling experience. As the fishing pressure increases, those unspoiled places with almost virgin trout that used to be so plentiful just a few years ago are disappearing.

From high mountain lakes and streams to wild river canyons and sprawling private ranches, the Solitary Angler has a variety of year-round angling opportunities to suit any angler’s needs, always without the crowds.

On our web pages you will find useful information about many of our waters and you can call us any time to get up-to-the-minute information. However, in order to protect the majority of our best fisheries, we don’t mention them here.

Currently, we have several new fantastic fisheries to offer our customers. Just contact us at , or call us and we’ll match you up with just the right place for the ultimate angling experience.
