A unique urban fly-fishing experience.

Inspired by our success in increasing the conversion and retention rates for participation in the skiing and snowboarding industry, Shredder has decided to expand our program into another outdoor industry.

The Shredder Outdoor program allows for an outgoing, outdoor-loving clientele to develop and advance their fly-fishing skills and knowledge in a comfortable, collaborative, and safe environment.

Shredder Outdoor is a Colorado-owned, independent company focused on positively influencing each outdoor experience and creating an encouraging environment in which everyone feels comfortable to learn. Our business is designed to help lower the barriers of entry for kids and adults to learn a new sport by addressing the common industry issues of time, distance, equipment and money. Shredder Outdoors’s innovative curriculum and unique indoor experience increases the conversion and retention rates for fly-fishing participation because it is accessible, affordable, and exciting!

We have recently partnered with the National Fly Fishing in Schools Program (NFSP) to create a unique curriculum for Shredder Outdoors! “Fishing in Schools” is a nationwide outdoor education program for elementary schools, middle schools and high schools that use fishing as a teaching tool. We are excited to collaborate with NFSP to combine our knowledge, skills and resources of the fly-fishing industry and share it with participants to create an unforgettable learning experience.


OUR MISSION

To create and inspire a love for fly-fishing and to teach the fundamentals in a fun, urban setting.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Shredder Outdoors’s philosophy is to guide participants through skill progressions to build confidence, knowledge, and proficiency.
