"Successful Seasons - Year Round Fishing in Colorado"

with Landon Mayer

Landon Mayer

One of the top guides in the Western United States, Colorado guide Landon Mayer
makes a welcome return to the SoCal speaker circuit. His new video-enhanced program
will lay to rest the myth that giant trout can only be caught in the Spring and Fall. 

Landon Mayer’s angling success is fueled by an addiction to pursuing large
trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment.

Mayer enthusiastically teaches and demonstrates his techniques and on-river
knowledge and has developed innovative strategies for sighting, hooking, and
landing selective trout. He shares these tips and secrets in his books and DVD’s.

Landon’s passion for fly-fishing has allowed him to make several noteworthy
contributions to the sport on and off the water. This has included travels to fly-fishing
related organizations of the Mid-Atlantic, West, Pacific Northwest, Southwest,
and Southern states, as well as teaching through guided trips, fly-fishing classes,
presentations, and demonstrations of his unique techniques.

Mayer has been guiding in Colorado full time on the South Platte River for
the last 22 years, and one full season on the Nak Nek River in AK. 
He resides with his wife, Michelle, and their four children in Florissant, Colorado. 

Landon was born and raised in Colorado Springs where he began his fly fishing
career in the 6th grade when his middle school offered fly casting lessons.

Throughout his teens, Landon’s love of the sport grew when he spent all his free time hanging around local fly shops and watching VHS tapes by Gary Borger and Doug Swisher until the tapes actually wore out! After graduating high school, Landon pursued a career as a full time guide in Colorado, learning from great Colorado anglers such as Ed Engle, Pat Dorsey and fly tyer John Barr. He also spent one year guiding in Alaska on the Naknek River. During this same time, Landon began publishing articles in magazines such as 
FlyFisherman, Fly Rod & Reel, High Country Angler, Southwest Fly Fishing and American Angler.

Mayer is a contributing writer for Fly Fisherman and High Country Angler, Angler magazines. His contributions also have been featured in  publications such as Fly Rod and ReelAmerican AnglerSouthwest Fly Fishing,  Field and Stream, and Fish and Fly magazines. 

As an ambassador in the fly-fishing industry, Mayer represents several lines
including Simms Fly Fishing apparel and is a royalty fly designer for Umpqua
Feather Merchants. He is also an advisory team member of Simms,
R.L.Winton, Bauer, Scientific Angler, Smith Optics, Fish Pond,
Yeti Coolers, Regal Vise, and Casio Pro Trek watches.

Landon’s techniques are contained in his best know publications and DVD’s. The Hunt for Giant Trout: 25 Top Locations in the US to Catch a Trophy Trout (new for 2019)Trout Tips: A Guide’s Secrets, Tactics and TechniquesColorado’s Best Fly Fishing, Sight Fishing for Trout, and How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life,  in addition to two DVDs:  Landing the Trout of Your Life and Weapons of Bass Production, both of which also feature John Barr.

Together with his wife Michelle (who shares his passion for the sport) and
their four children, Landon continues to live near his home waters of the
South Platte River in Colorado where he teaches fly fishing through guiding
and fly fishing classes; he also appears around the country giving presentations
of his innovative, successful and popular techniques.
