Juan Ramirez

Juan Ramirez

Juan grew up in Northern New Mexico fishing the small streams and creeks of the Sangre De Cristos. In 1997, a switch to fly-fishing was made and he has never looked back. Over the years, he has guided on the Cimarron River in New Mexico as well as the South Platte River in Colorado.

Juan received his first tying kit when he was 15. After a few disastrous “creations”, it was put away for a few years. In college at Durango, CO the kit was opened and a new appreciation for the globs of fur, feathers, floss and thread was created. Now after 15 years of tying Juan is an accomplished fly tier. Currently a part time guide for Anglers Covey and a fly tying instructor for Ghillies Fly Shop in Colorado Springs, there are not many seconds that pass without the thought of fishing or tying that go by.

Juan is also a member of the Montana Fly Company design team.
