There are times when the fish are beyond a short approach and cast. Learning to control long lengths of line in the air comes down to timing and feel. Single and double hauls are great tools to have in the box. Take some time now to learn that tempo before the fall season comes.
Throwing crappy. long, loud and inaccurate casts catch zip. Tune up and get that fifty foot handshake.
I started this company as an independent guide who could provide a higher level of service. I began my career as a river guide in The Forks. After a season on the Kennebec and Dead rivers I moved over to the West Branch of the Penobscot where I spent six seasons guiding and fishing those waters.
Before long stories of other rivers and ranges beckoned. I lived and played in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Utah, California and Alaska.
As great as waters like The Henry's Fork, The Missouri, The Gros Ventre and Flat Creek were I always knew I would return to live in Maine. With the amount of moving water in this state I am continually finding new places to explore.
Guiding for me is still as fresh today as it was when I first started. I can't think of a more rewarding occupation.
