John MacMurray was born and raised in the mountains of Colorado. That is where he has attained a serious passion for catching trout on the fly. Learning the craft on the freestones and tail waters like the upper Colorado, Eagle, Arkansas, and the Roaring Fork he is a well rounded angler. Given the steep gradient of the trout rivers back home, he enjoys fishing fast pocket water and running lines in rapids. Although ripping streamers for brown trout is his favourite thing to do, he believes letting the trout decide what method to use is the best plan of attack. The past season John spent guiding the Jackson hole area in Wyoming, teaching anglers how to catch cutthroat on big foam dry flies which transfers nicely with the Terrestrial bite in Chile.
