Born and raised in Colorado Springs, CO, Landon Mayer grew up exploring and learning from the vast landscapes of the South Platte River and beyond. Upon reaching adulthood, he decided that fly fishing was to become more than a lifestyle, it would be a way of life, embarking on his nearly two decade journey as a fly fishing professional.
Mayer enthusiastically teaches and demonstrates his techniques and on-river knowledge to fellow anglers year round. He shares these tips and secrets in his books 101 Trout Tips: A Guide’s Secrets, Tactics and Techniques (new for 2014), Colorado’s Best Fly Fishing, Sight Fishing for Trout, and How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life, in addition to two DVDs: Landing the Trout of Your Life and Weapons of Bass Production, both of which also feature John Barr. Landon is a contributing writer for Fly Fisherman and High Country Angler magazines. His work has also been featured in Fly Rod & Reel, American Angler, Southwest Fly Fishing, Field & Stream magazines.
Besides Simms, Mayer is a Pro team member for, Ross/Abel Reels, Winston Rod Co., Scientific Anglers, Smith Optics, Fish Pond, Yeti Coolers, Casio Pro Trek watches, and an Umpqua Feather Merchants royalty tier.
Together with his wife Michelle (who shares his passion for the sport) and their four children, Landon continues to live near his home waters of the South Platte River in Colorado where he continues to give back in fly fishing through guiding and fly fishing classes; he also appears around the country giving presentations of his innovative, successful and popular techniques.
