Mustang Ted Relihan
Colorado, Grand Junction
BioHis mother named him Ted, and the exact origin of "Mustang" has thus far eluded us. The explanation of this eccentricity is included in the price of a standard guided trip.
Clients come back to Ted year after year for his personality and knowledge of local trout streams. Ted is also an extremely creative fly tyer, and shows his fishermen unique techniques for catching high country trout throughout the year. From the giant rainbows of the Frying pan to tiny native cutthroat of the White River's tributaries, Ted fishes tremendously diverse trout waters for a variety of wild species. Most of his customers book several days so that Ted can show them more of his favorite honey holes.
For years, Mustang's daily battle rod was the G2 904/4. Then, he discovered the 8' 8" 4-piece G2 rods, and began to fish those religiously. A few years ago he picked up a Scott Fibertouch for the first time, and he swears that the Fibertouch 703/3 has changed the way he fishes. Here in Colorado, we fish small streams with dry flies for wild fish, and Mustang has found the perfect rod for the job.
