If you want the best advice and guidance in the world of fly fishing, then this is where you need to go. For the last two and a half years I've been guided by John Cochran through a low water, high temp drought year with heavy restrictions on our ability to guide, an extremely high snow-pack year with runoff peaking during our busiest weekend of the season, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic. It's impossible to say how I would have made it through those three seasons without having John to turn to. It's clear that his vast experience and diverse knowledge of the retail and outfitting side of the fly fishing industry is only matched by his intuition, decisiveness and fact-based bluntness. I truly don't believe there is a price you can put on his services that actually accounts for what he will provide to you and your business. Thank you John, we look forward to our continued relationship.

Customer Testimonial - John Cochran, with Outdoor Recreation Strategies, went the extra mile to ensure I had the most functional business website possible. I could tell, from the beginning, he had his best intentions on making my website top notch. I was not really sure how to update my site so I left it up to the professional. He gave my website a whole new fresh look that was more visually pleasing and user friendly. He also set up online reservations and a full Google PPC campaign.
If you're interested in an upgrade to your website and don't have the time or skills to do it, let John take care of it.

Customer Testimonial - Several years ago, I engaged John Cochran as a consultant for my business, Rocky Mountain Pet Resort and Rocky Mountain Retrievers. Due to a substantial increase in competition and decrease in new customer base, our need for business growth was evident. Mr. Cochran developed a plan to target customers searching for services in our sector while implementing programs that helped us maintain a new and satisfied existing clientele while keeping them loyal. He updated our website with current and more relevant content as well as linking industry websites with ours. He also gave our Facebook page a great new look and linked it to our website. John also implemented a marketing program with Google, Google Ad’s, incorporated specials, rack cards and arranged personal visits to local businesses in our area to develop relationships with those that could recommend our business. Finally, he studied our processes and procedures and was able to make recommendations to streamline our operations that helped us become more efficient and effective. I consider my continued relationship key to my company’s success and future.
