Barney Cohen

Barney CohenBarry moved to Colorado in October 1982 and started fishing the area in the spring of 1983. After escaping from the accounting profession, he became a part -time guide in May 1998. “I only work part -time since I refuse to let work interfere with my fishing ” During his tenure as a guide he was also an instructor for one of the Orvis fly fishing schools with students ranging from 8 to over 80. Barney’s idea of a guide trip consists of many aspects. First and foremost, he will try to tailor each trip to what the client desires from a guide trip. It could be going after the big one, or trying to catch lots of fish, learning how to fish, learning the area for future fishing outings or any combination of factors. He tries to emphasize the entire fishing experience: emphazing stream etiquette, getting out and enjoying the day, forgetting about the everyday worries, experiencing the beauty of the area, and most importantly having fun. After all, fishing is supposed to be fun ! If has fins and feeds, Barney is probably trying to catch it on the fly ! Besides fishing fro trout, he spends time fishing for various salt water species as well as going after bass, northern pike, and carp in freshwater environments.
