Our History

We’ve been treating residents and visitors of the Roaring Fork Valley to top-shelf fly fishing tours for nearly ten years. Founded in 2012 by Kea Hause, Proudline carries on the founder’s legacy of teaching the importance of preserving our rivers and helping others find fulfillment in their own lives and fly fishing experiences.

Kea started his own fly fishing business in 2012 and surrounded himself with a small crew of guides who he taught the value of bringing the ethics of continued care for our rivers and streams back into guiding. He regarded himself as having been fortunate to guide and to have been guided by the old and new masters of the fly-fishing industry.  He had strong beliefs about paying it forward and happily donated time and trips to worthy causes, encouraging his peers to do the same.  Our ongoing support of organizations like Casting for Recovery and Disabled American Veterans are an extension of these same beliefs.
