Hunter Burnham

E-Commerce & Customer Service Manager, Vail Valley Anglers Wade Guide


Born here in Vail and raised in Gypsum, CO

Guide Experience:

Began guiding professionally in 2019

Fishing Experience:

Since I was able to walk I've had a fishing pole in my hand. Summer vacations were used to work on the boat and fishing. In 2015/16 I picked up a fly rod and it changed my whole perspective of being an active angler.

Exotic Experience:

I've done some saltwater fly fishing in Florida but most of my exotic experiences come from lakes above 10,000 feet elevation. I am looking forward more salt water fly fishing in the future!

Wish List:

That's easy - the backcountry of New Zealand has been the dream trip since I started fly fishing!


Fly fishing, fly tying, hunting, snowboarding, camping, and hiking

Favorite Thing About Guiding:

You can't beat the ear-to-ear grin on a client's face when they put their first fish to the net. It's a glorious reminder of my first time and it gets me amped beyond words!
