Guide Real Talk: Life as a Guide Turned Outfitter

Guide Real Talk: Life as a Guide Turned Outfitter

For many guides, moving toward owning an outfitting business is a sustainable way to continue to participate in the industry of guiding. The Redside Foundation wanted to know more about what it takes to transition from guide to outfitter or guide/outfitter.

For this quarter’s Guide Real Talk, we talked with Erik Weiseth, Ron Ens and Zach Collier about the challenges and rewards of running the show.

Guide Real Talk: Remembrance

Guide Real Talk: Remembrance

Remember the guides that tested and tamed you, who brought you their hearts on their dirty sleeves and in return took care of yours. Remember that boat they rowed, and who rows it today. Remember the joy you share with the currents. This unspoken joy is what makes these fellow guides become precious gems in our timelines.

Idaho guide and Redside Guide Liaison Courtney Smart shares her thoughts - and discomfort - with remembrance.
