When Do You Get to Fish?

As a fishing guide, one of the most frequently asked questions I encounter is, “when do you get to fish?”  The short answer is not that often.  I guided trips for 28 days in a row my first year.  You’ve got to make hay when the sun shines in this business so if that involves working through prime time fishing or making time for all the other things that involve being an adult, you do what you have to do.  When the weather turns cold and work is a little more flexible, though, is when I get to to fish.  Every winter is also when I get to fish a lot with my best buddy Dustin Wichterman.  Every year without fail, we fish during a Winter Weather Advisory and kick some ass on some terribly technical no-name West Virginia spring creeks.  Here is our trip from the weekend.
