Tim Hebbard

Tim lives just outside of Durango Colorado with his wife Kelly. Tim is with out a doubt one of the most technical anglers and guides on the water. His guide style is fun and technical with plenty of humor to keep things light. He is known for his ability to teach anyone with patience and passion.

Tim has been guiding the Southwest since the mid 90's and brings a ton of knowledge, fun and humor to AVA. Being an accomplished fly tier and angler makes Tim an outstanding guide and friend on the water.

Tim is very much at home on the San Juan in northern New Mexico or looking for brookies and cuts on the mountain creeks. However, the highlight to Tim's guide season is the time spent guiding on the Rio Grande and at Man Camp. Be it wade fishing or cranking on the oars on a float trip, you are in good hands with Tim.

Off the water Tim works on countless home projects, works as a finish carpenter for Jarvis Construction, ties flies and can be found at the local hockey rink. Will and Tim have played a lot of hockey together over the years. In 2005 they both had the fortune of drinking cheap beer from the Championship Cup after winning the Durango Adult Hockey League's A1 division.

We are the best, that's right, the best guide service that is based out of Durango Colorado and fishes the entire southwest. We are strickly a guide service, no retail operations to ... moredistract us from what is truly important, the trout. We offer custom and peronalized fly fishing trips on all the great waters of the southwest. That includes the San Juan Quality Waters (plus the mid and lower river), Rio Grande, Animas, upper San Juan, Dolores (upper and lower), Pine, Florida, mountain creeks, Root Pond trophy trout lake, headwaters and more!

We are open, and more than willing to fish 365 days a year. We offer killer spring wade and float trips, solid summer hatches, fall adventures and very consistent winter angling. Great guides, all with the knowledge and personalities to make sure your time on the water with Animas Valley Anglers is special and rewarding. No pressure guiding, great teachers, stunning scenery and a few nice trout will help make memories that will last a life time time (year after year)!
