Monroe began fishing as a boy in Nebraska going on carp fishing adventures with his grandmother. She stirred a passion in him for the outdoors and as he grew up became first a Boy Scout and, then, earned his Eagle Scout status.

In 1988, Monroe joined the staff of the Blue Quill Angler as a part-time guide, something he enjoyed so much that after he retired from Qwest Telcom in 2003, he began guiding on a full-time basis. He and his wife, Melody, have lived in Evergreen for twenty-six years and own a business there called Girlfriends Clothing.

Nicknamed “Dry or Die”, Monroe is very impressively skilled in all aspects of fly fishing especially dry fly. He has been written about in several publications such as The Orvis Fly Fishing Guide and The Rocky Mountain News.

Monroe has the ability to make big fish come up and eat dry flies even when nothing is hatching. He is also a very accomplished nymph and streamer fisherman. Anglers that have the pleasure of fishing with Monroe come back from the experience with their cheeks hurting caused by the laughter they have shared with him.

Sharing his passion for the sport is something that Monroe loves to do especially with his two granddaughters, ages nine and eleven who share his skill with dry flies. He is looking forward to the time when they will row him down the river because then his journey will be complete.
