Fly-Fish, Sip and Stay in Vail

Colorado fly fishing plus local spirits and amenity-filled accommodations is a total catch


The “Flights & Flies” package, one of Antlers at Vail hotel’s most popular stay-and-play packages is back–with a twist.

The only-in-Vail experience, providing two guests with a two-night fly-fishing getaway to the Vail Valley’s remarkable waters and complimentary take-home Vail buff for stylish sun protection, plus a flight of five locally distilled spirits at award-winning 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Co., is now offered as a year-round opportunity.

The Flights & Flies package hooks guests up with the Gore Creek Fisherman for a half-day fly-fishing wade trip on scenic local waters, including the upper and lower Colorado, Eagle and Roaring Fork Rivers. Gore Creek Fisherman, known for helping anglers enjoy the finest trout fishing in the Vail Valley for over 35 years, provides flies, waders, boots, rod and reel (guest must purchase Colorado fishing license) along with the guided experience to where fish are biting.

For the ideal follow-up to a refreshing day on the river taking in the Colorado mountain scenery and angling for trout, Antlers at Vail has again teamed up with the award-winning and philanthropic 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Co for the “flights” portion of the package.

The boutique Vail distillery offers an exceptional collection of house-branded whiskey, moonshine and vodka to enjoy in the cozy lounge and pub-style tasting room that is genuinely steeped in the Army infantry division’s Colorado past. The “Flights & Flies” package includes two vouchers treating guests to a flight of five of the distillery’s locally crafted spirits, a souvenir rocks glass and a $5 gift certificate good toward a merchandise purchase.
