John Bocchino

Small_bo3_950x450My name is John Bocchino, and I go by John or Bo. I am a fly fishing guide, and I live on the Western Slope of the Colorado Rockies, in Gunnison. I have been in the Gunnison Valley since 2006, when I came to work for one of the top resorts in the valley. I managed the fly shop and guide service there for five seasons and guided for eight seasons, prior to starting up my own fly fishing outfitting business and working for myself for a couple of years. I joined Irwin Guides in 2015.

Fly fishing is my passion, and I spend as much time on the water as possible. This part of the Rocky Mountains is home to some of the best trout rivers in the country, and there are countless opportunities to fly fish on a variety of water in the area. I am a member and past president of our local Trout Unlimited (TU) chapter in Gunnison, the Gunnison Angling Society. I am a life member of TU, and fully support the TU mission to conserve, protect and restore North America’s coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.

Prior to pursuing a career in the fly fishing industry, I spent 25 years in telecommunications, information technology, engineering and consulting. My business experience is extensive and has varied over the years. I worked for multi-national corporations with operations around the globe. I was fortunate enough to be able to travel around the US, Canada, Europe, and Hong Kong and China.
