image2Anthony was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pa-home of the six time Super Bowl Champion Steelers (had to add that). He started chasing fish about the time he could walk with his dad and grandfathers. The passion for fishing was passed down, almost inherently. His most vivid memories from childhood are at the lake or on a river.  Receiving a fly rod at thirteen seemed like natural progression.

In pursuit of a culinary career and a desire to “head west”, Anthony landed in Vail in ’99.  Working in some of the Valley’s top restaurants, balancing chasing fish and the lifestyle in the high country.  In 2008 he branched off from the restaurant scene, became a private chef and started guiding; the next phase in pursuing both passions.

Fly fishing has lead Anthony across Colorado and western states, Idaho and the OP for steelhead, Patagonia, Belize, Mexico and others; all for the chase.  If there is water around he wants to be fishing it, you get the point.

The passion is now being passed on to the next generation, proud father to Tucker Hatch Mazza age 3, future fishing addict who can’t get enough time on the water

“Its not the best fishermen who catches all the fish, its the best listener” - Lincoln Westby (permit master)

Wade fishing is a great way to experience our local rivers, especially some of the smaller drainages and to access areas the boats cannot. Wade fishing offers anglers a great interaction with the guide and an ability to learn and concentrate on a technique or a particular stretch of river. Wade is an especially great option of beginners and anglers looking to hone their skills on the river. The rivers we wade are Gore Creek, the Eagle River, the Blue River, Roaring Fork, and the Colorado. Each river fishes differently depending on the season and our guide’s fish year around; unless you would like to fish a certain area the guides will take you to the stretch they feel is fishing the best. Half-day wades are typically 4 hours and full days are 7-8 hours. Trip prices are all inclusive, including flies, leader, terminal tackle, waders and boots, bottled water, and lunch on full day trips. All reservations are subject to availability at time of booking.

Gore Creek runs through the heart of Vail and is listed as a Gold Medal fishery. Gore Creek offers the angler the opportunity to catch a grand slam (4 trout species in the same day) as well as shots at sight fishing trophy-sized trout. The Gore is great place for easy access mainly because of the bike path running the length of the creek.

Gore Creek is a local gem, often referred to as “the Heart of Vail”. The Gore offers incredible diverse bug life and fishing opportunities and is a great place to spend a day off the slopes in the winter, or an evening throwing dry flies to rising Cutthroats.
