2019 Best of the Boat fly fisherman: Johnny Spillane

All we know is that we’d hate to be out on the water if all three of these fishermen were there; they’d catch everything in sight before our first cast.

While it’s not likely to ever come down to such a Showdown on the Yampa Corral, voters this year pegged Steamboat Flyfisher owner and former Nordic combined Olympian Johnny Spillane as town’s top angler.

Not that he thinks so or even cares about the accolades; he’s happier helping others get out to also enjoy his beloved Yampa River.
