The Destination Angler Podcast


The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

Sep 2, 2021

Our destination is the Arkansas River in beautiful Colorado with expert fly angler, guide, and all-around fish whisperer, Greg Felt, owner of ArkAnglers fly shop, Salida and Buena Vista, Colorado.   Spectacular scenery, 100 miles of public access and pocket water, Gold Medal status, and diverse hatches make the Arkansas THE fan favorite of Colorado anglers year after year. 

For over 30 years Greg has called the Arkansas River Valley his home.  As a fly fishing guide, fly shop owner, and Chaffee County Commissioner, Greg is strong on technical knowledge and is deeply involved in water issues in the state.  He was even appointed by the Governor to serve on the Colorado Water Conservation Board.  Greg gives us a great rundown on all aspects of this freestone stream from its headwaters near Leadville to the tailwater below Pueblo, and lessons on leadership from his years as a float guide now turned conservationist. Bonus: alpine lakes and top tributaries plus Greg’s top fly picks.   

With Host, Steve Haigh
