Glenn Smith, A proud Colorado native, fly fisherman and professed “jack of all trades” and a professional fly fishing guide with Taylor Creek Fly Shop in Basalt, Colorado. Basalt is also known as “a drinking town with a big fishing problem”.

Glenn has been a guide for over 18 years. His stale is a bit unorthodox, his wit is unmatched and reads the water as well as he reads people, he does that pretty darn well.

Here is the shops bio on Glenn:

“Glenn Smith, a native of Colorado, has been a Taylor Creek guide since early 1993. He specializes in flyfishing instruction and truly enjoys introducing the sport to the beginner, taking the mystery out and replacing it with common sense and good fun. One of the Taylor Creek “renaissance men”, Glenn is an accomplished chef and has cultivated an eclectic clientele base ranging from artists to lawyers, brain surgeons to museum curators, ballerinas to hookers. He is especially good with kids. Known for a pleasantly warped sense of humor, Glenn is another unique addition to the Taylor Creek cast of characters.”

  1. I had to stop by – my father-in-law – rest his soul moved out to New Mexico (with his wife too!) to be nearest his love – the San Juan River and home to the greatest fishing in the world. He’d been a house painter by day, but was always an avid fisherman… One of his son’s enters and wins many fishing competitions up north.
    My father-in-law absolutely adored fishing. His wife, my mother-in-law is a stained glass artist. She’s the one who originally got him interested in leaving New Jersey. She with fellow artist friends, would take yearly trips out to Santa Fe and Taos to be part of the artistic community out there. They settled down near Farmington.
    I look forward to perusing your blog

    we used to fly into Durango, CO but got a little suspect of the puddle-jumper planes especially when the pilot asked my giant 6’7″ husband to move to a different seat to help with the weight distribution on the plane!
