Gary Okizaki has been a guide for the Blue Quill Angler for seven years and brings a wealth of experience to his clients. He teaches the Saturday “free” Introductory Fly Fishing seminars and enjoys the camaraderie he has with his students. A Denver native, he started fishing with his father at age six. Some fifty years later, he has fished much that Colorado has to offer and is fortunate to have fished and learned from some of the best fly fishermen and casters in the United States. Gary especially enjoys Czech or Polish nymphing and when guiding and teaching, he shares his skills in those areas.

Gary has demonstrated his tying skills for the West Denver Trout Unlimited Fly Tying Clinic and has been a featured casting demonstrator and instructor for the Orvis owned stores in Colorado. His seminars include Czech and Polish nymphing techniques, leader construction and knot tying.

When a hatch occurs, Gary may well be the first to tie on a dry fly but he is also a wet fly enthusiast. Dry fly fishing allows Gary to demonstrate and teach his casting techniques to his clients. His knowledge of nymphing, streamer, wet fly and dry fly fishing, combined with his humor and a respect for nature make him a complete guide.
