MAYFLY Fly Fishing is a freelance guide service based in beautiful Northern New Mexico. We are committed to giving you the best day possible on the water. Please let us know if you have any physical limitations at time of booking so that we can better tailor your fly fishing experience. Whether it's gaining knowledge in fly choices, achieving a drag free drift, or landing the trout of your dreams, we believe that success comes in all sizes. 


MAYFLY Fly Fishing offers Half Day and Full Day guided trips on the Chama River, Brazos River, Conejos River (requires Colorado fishing license), high mountain streams, and private waters. If you are a beginner or just looking to improve your fly fishing skills, you may wish to request four hours of Private One-On-One instruction.


For parties of 3 or more, we recommend the addition of a second guide to maximize your experience while minimizing the impact on the fish.


Please contact us if you have any questions or need help planning your day on the water.​​  We look forward to guiding you!
