Becoming a Fishing Guide

October 14, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

In my own case, becoming a fishing guide was almost accidental. I was taking a year off from a publishing career and was asked to cover his “overflow” by a veteran Key West guide. The only advice I got? Read 92 In the Shade and go fishing. But thanks to Colorado Mountain College’s Timberline campus in Leadville, you can learn the ins and outs of guiding with a bit more structure, at least if you want to be a trout guide.
