Here at Mile High Trout we are crazy about fishing in Colorado. Where most drive by and see a stream, river, or lake, we see Trout, we see Mile High Trout. At Mile High trout we honor the mountains, the river, and the trout. We are about upholding the Colorado fishing lifestyle and always making sure we look good doing it.
Mile High Trout holds the philosophy that “we are more than just an apparel or fishing company. We want to create and embrace a new culture for Colorado fishing.” Mile High Trout puts considerable effort into educating our friends and customers about local trout species; local rivers, streams, and lakes; catch and release, and obviously our state fish the Cutthroat Trout. We consider it an honor and our duty to do this, and other things to help advance the enjoyment of fishing in Colorado and ensure its future.
Our mission is simple: to create a new local fishing culture & provide the best products to our customers at the lowest prices possible. By the way, all of our apparel is made using local Colorado companies.
History of the Logo
The logo embraces several aspects that a local Colorado Fisherman could identify with, the main being the Cutthroat Trout. What symbolizes Colorado fishing more than this trout? Next, elements of the Colorado Flag were added, featuring the Red Colorado “C” as the red cuts that makes a cutthroat so legendary. Next, what does a trout and fisherman need to make fishing happen, a river. The final element of the logo was obvious, mountains. It is what makes Colorado, Colorado.
The concept for the logo was originated by owner Brent Facchinello, and the final logo was designed by local artist, Drew Kessinger.
All of Mile High Trout’s apparel have been printed and sourced using a small local Colorado printing company that is growing. It is very important for MHT to use Colorado owned small businesses and give jobs to Coloradoans. The future for the clothing includes artwork and designs by local artist featuring the Mile High Trout lifestyle.
The Mile High Trout Logo Decal will help the Colorado Fishing Community come together, create a new culture, and bring awareness to non-fishers. $1 of every decal sold will be donated to the local Trout Unlimited Chapter.
Mile High Trout also donates to the Colorado Trout Unlimited Youth Fly Fishing Camp.
