Fly Fishing Expert Niki Cousins
  • Niki Cousins

    I am Niki, a Colorado native that has never left! I have always enjoyed everything outdoors so when I picked up a fly rod, I was hooked! I dove in deep and got very involved in my area. I became a board member for my local Trout Unlimited chapter, The Greenbacks. I also helped begin the Denver project with The Mayfly Project. This has given me the opportunity to fish with many different people of all skill levels, fish in many different places experiencing so many different kinds of fish and fishing. I have worked in the outdoor retail industry for many many years, starting in the ski and snowboard industry. Currently I am a freelance graphic designer and watercolor artist working from home while trying to help my step daughters navigate remote school!

    Niki Knows Flyfishing!
    Niki is a professional and it shows. She has fished a wide range of products and sizes so her knowledge is very helpful. I was able to say what I liked about my old gear and what I wanted in the new gear. She was great at hearing what I was saying and then supplied multiple suggestions. Here is an example. I do 90% dry flies on smaller rivers and lakes. 9 foot 5 weight rod. Most people would recommend a medium-fast rod for a delicate presentation and they would not be wrong. But I also push my 5 weight with some bigger flies and streamers. I also fish in a windy location that my line has to punch through the wind, so a faster action suits my needs better. Niki took this information and tailored her ideas to my needs and budget. I found the perfect set up and now I will be checking the mail daily. Awesome job from a knowledgable, friendly, and helpful professional!!!
