Denny Rickards

Crystal Creek Anglers

For the past forty years Denny Rickards has had an opportunity to fish and guide anglers over some of the most challenging trophy trout lakes in the Western United States. His simplistic approach and techniques on presentation have accounted for rainbows and browns over 20 pounds and cutthroats over 15 pounds.

Over 250 days a year are spent doing what he loves best: fishing stillwaters around the country, conducting Stillwater fly fishing clinics, creating new Stillwater patterns, developing new products for tackle manufacturers and writing articles about his experiences on the water.

As a professional fly tier, his suggestive patterns are considered among the best flies available to Stillwater anglers. Based on past reviews, his books and companion DVDs are referred to as the “bibles” for fly fishing lakes.

When he isn’t fishing or guiding, many hours are spent studying trout behavior, crating innovated flies for lakes and developing new presentation techniques for stillwaters.

His knowledge and ability to teach others were a prerequisite to establishing his fly fishing schools/clinics which have become a priority for anglers seeking the ultimate from their Stillwater angling experiences.
