Back to The Smith Optics Fly Fishers Journal

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison

Pat Ehlers of The Fly Fishers and son Tanner headed out to see our old friend Steve Brown, aka Brownie, the proprietor at Flyfish Guanaja in Honduras (check out the Journal log on Guanaja and Steve's operation) and to float the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and to fly fish the famous Salmon Fly hatch that takes place here every year. Brownie spends the summers in Colorado guiding for Gunnison River Expeditions.

The trip is a camping trip that includes 3 days of fly fishing the Gunnison with GRE. Checkout their great float in the Journal. Click on the images for information and fishing tips on this great adventure.

We are now booking trips with Gunnison River Expeditions. Call Pat (414-259-8100) or email him at pat@theflyfishers.com for more information on this fun trip.
