Additional Thoughts:Excellent
"Falcon's Ledge, UT is a wonderful place to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the lodge, the awesome guides, to relax in the lodge, the gourmet food and the most beautiful places to fish. I had never fished at the age of 57 and I was awful but the guides were patient, caring and fun. Now, 10 years later I am never going to be a great fly-fishing woman, but I love the lodge, the gift of the guides, the amazing women I have met and the
time to enjoy these 10 years---those moment in my life. Every day is a gift and fishing with the guides and the women who I have enjoyed have enriched my life.

"We (3 guys) spent two days fishing the Rock Creek and Pinnacles streams. The guides Tim, Jake and Spencer were great, caught a lot of fish, and great scenery. Falcon's Ledge is an excellent lodge, great rooms, service, and ammenities (hot tub!). Also, its only about a 2 hour drive from Salt Lake airport, so very convenient access."

"I have come to Falcon's Ledge for four years in a row. Of all of the lodges I have ever visited, Falcon's Ledge is by far my favorite. I am amazed every year by better fishing, better food, and a more beautiful lodge. The guides are professional, prepared, and fun to spend time fishing with. I recommend Falcon's Ledge to any angler (new or experienced) that I meet. I cannot wait for next year already! Thank you Falcon's Ledge for another memorable year!"

"Relax and enjoy. Friendly people from beginning to end, makes you want to stay forever.
Excellent, defines the staff through out our visit. Chief, Scott was unbelievable. Vickie was always there morning or night with a friendly smile and ready to answer your request.
Garrett, your guide taught us all we didn't know, which was a lot, and made our first fly fishing experience the best.
To all the staff at Falcon's Ledge, Thank You and we hope to see you again soon.

"Could not be happier with the services provided. The guides couldn't have been better, and we have fished with other guides in the past. I appreciated their patience with teaching my wife how to fly fish. Because they took the time to teach her the skills needed, we can enjoy future fishing experiences together."

"GreatExperience! Great Guiding! Glad we came. Eric was excellent handling a novice (never fly fished) and an experienced fisher. He was patient, instructive and willing to answer any questions. Very focused on helping the experienced fisher learn more and very patient with the novice. He taught us alot about the lakes and rivers around the area so that we could come back (we have a home in Deer Valley) Glad we came and will be back."

"I will start out by saying that I love to fly fish. I don't get to do it as much as I would like though. My dad and I had been planning a trip like this for a few years so one could say I was quite exited. I had the expectation that I would catch a lot of big fish in beautiful places. I was not disappointed. Falcon's Ledge was the best fly fishing I have ever done in my life and I plan on coming back soon."

"While on a special vacation with our two youngest sons, we stayed at Falcon's Ledge for 3 nights and 2 days of fishing. Ours sons, ages 16 and 20, were captivated from the minute they saw the first of the many ponds on the property as we drove toward the lodge. Little did they know at the time, those ponds would create some lifetime fishing memories over the next few days! We were warmly greeted on arrival and upon each return to the lodge by Chef Scott who served fantastic meals and proved to be a wonderful host in every way. The guys will review the fishing and amazing coaching/instructing they received. From their many stories over meals, I know it was the best experience they have ever had!
I enthusiastically recommend a visit to Falcon's Ledge!

"We met up with some old friends at Falcon's Ledge for a nice vacation. I didn't do the research so I was depending on their judgement. They are my new travel guides! This lodge was awesome! The staff & guides were knowledgeable, friendly and went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable. Thanks to Scott I packed on more than a few pounds with his awesome meals. Thanks to John for taking my fishing to a higher level. I wanted to stay a few more days but I will be back....soon!"

Additional Thoughts:Best guide I have ever had based on knowledge, delivery of knowledge and instruction, and willingness to help me and my brother improve.
"I have grown up fishing the tailwaters of North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee. I came to Falcon Ledge with my parents and younger brother on a section of a western fly-fishing trip after my sophomore year in college. Night 1. John (one of the guides), stayed after dinner to brief my younger brother and I on the knots that we had hoped to become more sufficient with on this trip. His teaching was simple, direct, and effective. Thanks, John. I will continue my education of simple and effective knots because of that 10:00 o'clock tying lesson. Day 1. Derek (mine and my 16 year-old brother's guide) stalked through the sage brush of the Strawberry River, approached the water and took a knee. This was an interesting way to start a day of heavy fishing for two eager anglers. 20 minutes later we had, with Derek's teaching, identified a nice brown trout to throw to, identified the way in which he was feeding, identified the bugs hatching at that time, and identified the fly in his box, which we would use. Within a few casts the fish had eaten our fly, on top-water. The lessons for two semi-experienced anglers continued throughout the day, as we caught fish. I learned more about entomology,river stealth, and efficient river fishing than I ever had before from Derek. Thank you Derek for your time and lessons. You were the best guide I have ever had. Thank you Orvis for hiring fantastic guides, investing in unique properties, and providing a good experience at Falcon's Ledge for beginner, intermediate, and experienced anglers.

Additional Thoughts:Derek taught me so much. He was the best guide that I have ever had. He was willing to stop and carefully and fully explain what I should do and why.
"Everything here was more than I ever hoped it would be. Food was indescribably delicious. All the guides were extremely professional in the way they handled us. They were willing to take thirty minutes off at night to teach me all the knots or work with me on my cast. I feel like I have substantially improved my cast. Also, the ponds are so much fun to fish in. I caught my biggest fish ever in one of them! The lodge was also very comfortable. All in all, it was a five-star stay.
Thanks, Orvis!
