Ben Barrett

Hometown: Born and raised in the Gunnison Valley

Guide Experience: Have been guiding in the valley for 4 years now at Dragonfly Anglers.

Fishing Experience: I have been fly fishing since I was 15 and have dedicated most on my time looking for new areas to fish in Colorado and Wyoming. I’m also always trying to learn different fishing techniques to use on the river. I also enjoy hunting for big trout and other species with a fly rod. These days I have been euro nymphing and throwing streamers every chance I get.

Hobbies: When I’m not fly fishing I spend my time hunting, tying flies, and ice fishing.

Favorite Thing About Guiding: Sharing my passion for the sport to clients as well as knowledge to help them have success while fishing in the Gunnison valley.
