Animas Valley Anglers is looking to fill guide positions for the 2010 guide season. We are looking for self-motivated professionals with guide experience to join the AVA team.

Applicants must have the following qualifications:

  • Certified to float in Colorado on class I through III waters. If applicant is not from Colorado, they must have guide and personal float trips documented and logged. A letter confirming experience from previous employer or outfitter would need to be available and included with the guides river log. Colorado State Parks Outfitter Licensing Program requires a minimum number of hours and miles to be a certified guide. These minimum requirements must meet or exceed what is required.
  • Guides must have current first aid and CPR certification. Documents must be on file with AVA as well as the agencies that issue permits to AVA.
  • Guides would need to own or have access to a drift boat or skiff as well as a raft. Rafts must be 13 feet or longer and rigged for fly fishing. Each boat is required to be equipped with safety equipment, type III life jackets (San Juan), type V (Colorado), spare oars, anchor system, bow line, bailing device and first aide kit.
  • Applicants must have 3 or more years of fly fishing guide experience.
  • Must have a desire and passion to guide. Guides would need to be willing to work with all types of people as well as kids.
  • It would benefit a guide who is applying to AVA to have a base of clients to draw on. We can not guarantee guide trips every day.

AVA is a small guide service made up of professionals who love the guide lifestyle and living in the Southwest. We have a hell of a lot of fun, so we expect any new guide to be up for the same. If you are looking for a great guide gig, then this is the place for you. The guide position would start in May or June. AVA would want any newly hired guide to be around before the main season started to learn our waters and AvA operations. Drop us a line or email with any questions or thoughts. Resumes can be submitted by mail or email. e-mail link is below.
