About Me

My name is Christian Barnes, and I love SW Colorado.  Along with my wife, Amanda and our rambunctious German Short Haired Pointer, Kit, we explore and enjoy all that this unique area can offer.  From fly fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and biking Durango is our paradise.

I’ve been a resident of Durango since 2015, married my wife in Durango and plan on building my life and business in this incredible area.

I work part time at a Durango fly shop, volunteer my time with a of local number conservation organizations including the National Wild Turkery Federation and Ducks Unlimited in which we encourage youth participation in hunting and fishing for generations to come.

I have a B.A. (04) and M.B.A. (14) from Auburn University.
