Default Roaring Fork Guide Recommendation

I am going to be spending several days fly fishing the Roaring Fork area of Colorado this fall. Does anyone have a recommendation for a solid guide service out of Basalt, Carbondale, Aspen, etc.? Thanks

I'm sure many can chime in that have been guided on the Fork and the Pan. I never have, but have a cabin on the upper Frying Pan and consider it my home water. My favorite shop in the Valley is Frying Pan Anglers. They have pointed me to some great flies, techniques, and honey holes over the years.
