As Kirk Deeter says, guides are the gatekeepers of fly fishing. They know the water the best, when it’s fishing well, and when it’s not. They know the best rigs, bugs, and boats to use. When the ecosystem is in trouble, they are in tune with the water better than anyone.
“Through the Guides” is an interesting new documentary from the Noble Lab focusing on three guides, and “what motivates them, and how their life away from fishing influences how they chase fish.”
Enjoy their stories.
