Andrew Jackson

Vail Valley Anglers Wade & Float Guide


Asheville, NC. I have lived in Colorado for the last 5 years.

Guide Experience:

I have been guiding professionally since 2012. I wore out my boots guiding friends before that.

Fishing Experience:

Mainly Colorado but have fished a little in Western NC and TN. I love fishing from a boat and watching big browns crush streamers.

Exotic Experience


Wish List:

I would love to go to Patagonia and Chile to search for monster trout.


Fishing, Skiing, Rafting. If I can do it outside thats where you will usually find me.

Favorite Thing About Guiding:

My favorite thing about guiding so far is getting to help people learn and enjoy catching fish on a fly rod.



“I would give VVA 6 stars if I could! We had such a perfect 1/2 day fishing on the Colorado river with the best guide in Colorado, Andy Jackson. We had literally never fly fished, and Andy did such a great job teaching us and helping to find the right spots, always being on the spot with a new fly when it was needed. We had a successful day thanks to him! Andy did a great job mixing grade A fishing with sightseeing, pointing out interesting items and wildlife all along the river. It was a perfect outing! Definitely book with VVA with confidence, you will get a great, authentic experience catered to you!”
