Marcelo Caiozzi

I was born in Chile, South America where the beautiful and pristine mountains, rivers, lakes, and ocean created a lifelong impression on me.  A country rich in fly fishing for trout, salmon, sea run brown trout, corvina, and many other hard fighting species of fish.  Upon moving to the mid-west United States, I learned numerous techniques to catch large & small mouth bass, crappie, walleye, northern pike, muskie, catfish, carp, etc….  Following graduate school, I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico where I directed a collegiate Outdoor Education Program and developed a fly-fishing curriculum.  Teaching people how to fly fish soon became a real passion for me as I doubled as a professional guide for 3 separate fly-fishing businesses focusing on such rivers and streams as the legendary San Juan, Rio Grande, Chama, Cimarron, Culebra, Santa Barbara, Pecos, Jemez, & Rio de Los Pinos.  Now residing in Colorado, I continue my passion for fly-fishing and love exploring local Colorado waters such as the South Platte, Arkansas, Blue, Colorado, Gunnison, Roaring Fork, Frying Pan, North Platte, plus numerous pristine high elevation mountain lakes.  Besides fishing freshwater, I also enjoy my off-season vacation time fishing for such saltwater species as bonefish, redfish, jacks, tarpon, shark, barracuda, permit, and whatever else happens to swim by and bite my fly.  Too little time, so much water to explore………
