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

My passion for fly fishing began over 35 years ago growing up around the many lakes and rivers of Madison WI. In early 2000 I moved to Vail CO and have since then focused my attention on exploring and developing my knowledge of the local waters and the various fish and insect species that inhabit them. I love travel and adventure and fly fishing has taken me around the world to fish in some incredible locations, including New Zealand, Cuba, Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico. However my favorite thing to do is to fish and guide the local waters around the Eagle Valley as it offers endless fishing opportunities and adventures for all levels and half of the fun of fishing is the journey it takes you to get to the fish.   My favorite time to fish is nighttime, targeting trout with streamers and mice patterns. On my days off from guiding I am most likely found out of cell range finding new and challenging small creeks and streams to fish around the valley. While I love living in the Eagle Valley, I still spend my time trying to convince my girlfriend we need to visit her family in New Zealand:)

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.
