Ft. Collins, CO

Chris Krueger is a fly designer out of Fort Collins, CO, where he owns and operates Rocky Mountain Fly Design. Learning to tie at a young age, Chris grew up fishing his patterns and designs throughout the waters of northern Colorado and Wyoming. Tying commercially since the age of 14, he immediately developed a lifelong passion for the art and craftsmanship of fly tying. Now a teacher by day and fly tier by night, Chris combines his two passions and spends much of the year working with youth, teaching fly tying, demonstrating at shops and fly shows, tying commercially and spending time on the water. Chris finds his true fishing passion throwing articulated streamers for large predatory trout in Colorado and Wyoming. He is a pro team member with Regal Engineering, Whiting Farms, and a signature designer with Montana Fly Company.
