Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon offers two fly-fishing packages

June 18, 2009 — Whether you’re a novice fly fisherman just learning the sport or an experienced angler seeking new adventures, Colorado’s new Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa is a great destination for a rejuvenating fly fishing excursion.

Uniquely situated on the banks of the Eagle River, The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa – the Vail Valley’s first “green” resort - has created two affordable fly fishing packages to cater to fly fishermen and fisherwomen – the Angler Immersion Package and the Reel Deal Fly Fishing Getaway.

Guests love the on-site Gore Creek Fly Fisherman store, where they can do everything from stock up on the latest gear to learn about favorite local fishing spots.

Beginners can give fly fishing a try with our free daily casting clinics, held every morning at 10:30 a.m. on The Westin Riverfront’s wedding lawn.

The Angler Immersion Package is for those seeking the ultimate Colorado fly fishing experience, including two guided excursions led by Gore Creek Fly Fisherman.

Starting at $599 per night for two people, it includes:

* Lodging for two in a spacious studio suite

* A half-day guided wade trip on the Eagle River

* A full-day guided float trip down the Colorado River

* All equipment, licenses, transportation and lunch on the full-day trip

* Complimentary valet parking

For anglers wanting to strike out on their own, The Westin Riverfront is also offering The Reel Deal Fly Fishing Getaway.

Starting at just $299 per night, it includes:

* Accommodations in a spacious studio suite

* A fly box stocked with the appropriate flies

* A local river map

* A tip sheet highlighting favorite fishing hot spots provided by Gore Creek Fly Fisherman

* A to-go box packed with snacks

* Complimentary valet parking

The packages are available July 4 – Nov. 1. Lodging tax, resort fees and gratuity for the fly fishing guides are not included. A two night minimum stay is required with the Angler Immersion Package.

From Oct. 3 – Nov. 1, prices on the Angler Immersion Package drop to $529 per night and on the Real Deal Getaway drop to $229 per night.
