Where else are you going to find a flyshop that manufactures it’s own line of quality rods and reels?

Elkhorn Outdoors, LLC, was established in 1990 and is located in Loveland, Colorado. This small company was founded on the vision of crafting quality fly rods and reels for down-to-earth fly fishers who value fine, honest performance. With focus on product affordability, unmatched warranty service, and perfect fly presentation, Elkhorn rods and reels deliver on all fronts. In fact, Elkhorn is often credited with revolutionizing the industry by introducing a whole new breed of fly rods and reels to the marketplace at a reasonable price point. Elkhorn now offers over 70 models of high performance, affordable fly rods in weights 1 through 12 and 6 different models of reels. Two 11’0″ four piece switch rods in 5/6 and 7/8 weights and the new Ultra Traveler Series three piece one, two, and three weight rods are among the latest offerings.

Elkhorn added to its success in 1998 by introducing precision machine cut fly reels to the affordable lineup. There are no “die-cast”, or inexpensive shortcuts taken in the construction of these quality fly reels. Currently, four series of Elkhorn fly reels, the ECP, MA, T and Z series, are offered to perfectly complement our fly rods.

In 2005, Elkhorn introduced our “Ladies Lineup” which now features pink, purple, and raspberry colored rods and pink and raspberry colored reels.

Then, in 2010, Elkhorn picked up the challenge of operating a full service flyshop.  Beginning with the basics, and growing with each month, Elkhorn Flyshop now features an outstanding fly-tying department, acknowledged for its breadth and depth of selection and our efforts and acquiring hard to get materials and special orders.  Our guide department introduces customers to flyfishing in Rocky Mountain National Park and other waters, and our staff particularly enjoys presenting classes in flycasting, fly-tying, and introduction to fly fishing.

In October 2016, Elkhorn was sold to new owners Jim and Dan McGann. We bring a relentless passion for fly fishing combined with great business experience to continue to deliver outstanding rods and reels, an unmatched selection of fly-tying materials, customized guided fly fishing trips and fantastic classes for all levels of fly fishing men and women.


At Elkhorn, superlative customer service and 100% customer satisfaction are our primary core business goals. Elkhorn rods and reels have a lifetime warranty against manufacturing or workmanship defects. Our no-nonsense guarantee is simple: If the rod gets broken, we replace the broken section(s) for a minimal fee plus shipping and insurance. If the reel has a problem, repairs/rebuilds are handled on a case by case basis, but will not exceed $50 plus shipping and insurance. So fish hard, you’re covered.
