James "Jimbo" Busse

I was born and raised in Colorado, started fishing with my dad at age 5. Picked up my first fly rod when I was 22 and never looked back since. Started tying flys after a tour in the army in Vietnam, then Germany. Taught fly tying, fly fishing and casting and guided at "The Colorado Angler" for over 20 years. Have tied at ISE shows, TU clinics, and various shops through out Colorado. I believe a fly should be easy to tie, very durable, and of course catch fish so through my fishing career I have modified a lot of patterns to fit my needs. I will fish for anything that swims but my true love is fishing lakes. I live in Colorado Springs, Co. and am only 30 minutes to an hour away from some of the finest flyfishing in the country.
