What is the Guide’s Real Role?

Kirk Deeter, now editor of Trout Unlimited’s TROUT magazine, brought up an interesting topic on a recent blog post:  “What role does the fishing guide play in ‘fostering’ the future of this sport?”  It’s perhaps a bit more than many guides would like to ponder when getting up at dawn for another day on the water but Kirk suggests that there is more to guiding than putting a client on to fish; there is a duty to introduce the sport in a responsible way.

“One of my missions with TROUT magazine is to involve great guides more—to help make you a better angler, and to inspire guides with the core goal of protecting and preserving the resources that make great trout fishing happen.  The truly great guides already get that, in spades.”
