"Fishing? Wait, aren't you guys a Ski Shop?"
Yeah, we know. "Ski and Bow Rack" doesn't exactly sound like the full service fly shop that it is. But don't panic. Name or not, we've got you covered for all your fishing needs in the beautiful San Juan Mountains.
Certainly, there's a whole lot of fishable water here. So where do you start? Ha. At the Ski and Bow Rack, of course!
We've got up-to-date fishing reports color-coded to the fly bins for a quick, at-a-glance pickup of the flies hatching in the area. And if you want to spend some time talking with our friendly, helpful guides, they'll happily talk your ear off about where to fish, what to use, and the latest and greatest gear we have in the shop.
Not a fly-fisherman? Got your back, too. Our selection of spinning rods, reels, and lures for trout are second to none in the area--and we know just how to target trout throughout the year.
Perhaps you've found that trout, while they're nice and all, aren't really your cup of southern sweet tea and it's time to get back to a baitcaster, slopping frogs over the weeds for Largemouth, don't scramble back home just yet. We have some of the best Largemouth and Smallmouth fishing in Colorado right out our back doors and we have the equipment to get you on them. From St. Croix casting rods, and Shimano and Lew's baitcasting reels, to crankbaits, spooks, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, swimbaits, hair jigs, and a whole host of plastic baits, our bass offerings are like nothing else around.
And if you happen to hail from the midwest and feel like ice-fishing in NICE weather, get ready to have an experience on the ice like never before, but stop in to get the latest 13 Fishing, ice combos, jig heads, and finesse plastics first. Then go fish in a t-shirt. You'd never know you could ice fish without an expensive shelter so comfortably.
What this all really boils down to is that if you like to fish (doesn't really matter how--unless you're of the dynamite camp), don't you dare drive by without stopping (imagine your grandfather wagging his finger at you when we say that; it'll help).
