Iconic Colorado fishing with Fly Fishing Outfitters and the Antlers at Vail hotel

Vail, Colo. – April 2015 – Catch your limit of big brown trout, wet your whistle with a sampling of some of the best charred oak barrel whiskey currently being produced – and then follow it up with some true R&R in the Vail Valley’s most attentive, amenity-filled accommodations, all during Colorado’s most vibrant season. The Antlers at Vail is offering a new “Flights & Flies” two-night lodging-and-lifestyle package Sept. 1 – Nov. 15 for those guests eager to immerse themselves in some of the Rocky Mountains’ most popular pastimes.

It’s only fitting that a property like the Antlers at Vail – on the banks of Gore Creek and deeply rooted in the Vail community – would team up with the pros at Fly Fishing Outfitters (the only Orvis-endorsed guide service in the valley) and the 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Co., a new Vail craft distillery and tasting room genuinely steeped in the Army infantry division’s uniquely Colorado past. Together they create a trifecta of only-in-Colorado fall adventure.

Cost for the package is $324 per adult (double occupancy and excluding lodging tax – but the Antlers at Vail never charges a resort fee) for two nights in a one-bedroom condo. Included in the package is a half-day guided wade trip in prime trout country from the Eagle River to the Roaring Fork with Fly Fishing Outfitters, who will provide flies, waders, boots, rod and reel (guest must purchase Colorado fishing license). Package also includes two vouchers to 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Co.’s tasting room, where each guest will be treated to a flight of five of the distillery’s locally crafted spirits, a souvenir rocks glass and a $5 gift certificate good toward a merchandise purchase.
