Way­point: Rain­bow chasers

Outdoor Life - - CONTENTS -

The para­dox of a fish­ing guide’s life is this: You be­come a guide for the love of fish­ing, but you don’t get to fish as of­ten as you’d like. Your job is to help oth­ers fish. This is true of Colorado guides Matt West and John Muir, who spend their days off back on the river. Here, West tries to con­trol a flop­ping rain­bow as Muir read­ies the net as backup. “That’s one of the big­ger fish Matt has caught in Colorado,” pho­tog­ra­pher Matt Shaw says. “That’s the fish you float that sec­tion for.”
