Guides Day Off

Every once in a while, I get to actually go fishing. You may be thinking to yourself, "you fish every day, it's your job!" Guide days are spent rowing, untangling lines, and re rigging flies and leaders. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Even better than getting a day to fish on my own, is a day of fishing with my fellow guide buddies. We get the chance to bounce techniques off each other and pick each other's brains about ideas we have. With such a complex fishery and huge ecosystem, developing that kind of synergy is key to success on the water on a daily basis.  

Even more rare is a day on the water with three guides fishing in primo conditions for catching trophy browns. Tommy, Jason, and myself scored that day. When these rivers turn on, it can totally blow your mind. It was such a fun day, that I had to share a few photos.  And for the record, I got out fished...
