2019 Best of the Boat fishing guide: Johnny Spillane, Steamboat Flyfisher

Even though Steamboat Flyfisher owner Johnny Spillane maintains he “doesn’t guide much anymore,” voters still peg him as town’s best, whether he’s helping clients toss nymphs, dries or streamers.

And you’ll find those, and everything else you need for the day’s outing on the water, at his store on Yampa Street, where he’ll either be behind the counter, or one of his friendly staff members, to help give you your best chance at catching, not just fishing.
