Name: Ted Kraimer | Guide Just when I think I have the fish and the water figured out something changes which keeps me thinking about how I can get folks into fish. Over 14 years of guiding I've been accused of being articulate, organized, fastidious and a teacher - my response has been, "Thanks for the compliment." Favorite Food for the River: Nature Valley granola bars - I should be "Pro Staff" for them.  Best Fly Name: Chubby Cousin (because we all have one)  Favorite Piece of Gear: Waterproof Tackle Bag. I've used one on just about every guide trip through the years because it holds more than fly boxes including: person items for me and customers, tools, back-up / eventuality gear, leaders, tippet, miscellaneous tackle and more. (Maybe that's why it weighs so much?) Go To Beverage: Water. Because after the fishing is when I can enjoy a drink and reflect on the day.

Name: Evan Visuri | Guide  Whether it’s your first day on the water or looking to take your skills to the next level, I enjoy passing along some of the tips and tricks that I have picked up over my nearly ten years of guiding. Every day on the river is an adventure. Favorite food for the River: Fajitas Best Fly Name: 3 Peckered Billy Goat Favorite Piece of Gear: Dr. Slick mitten/scissor clamps. From snipping line to de-barbing hooks, to performing minor surgery. This multi-tool deserves a place in every anglers gear bag. Go to Beverage: May through September has to be Coronas with a lime. October through April there is always Makers Mark on the boat somewhere.

Name: Storm | Shop Dog I'm the shop dog at The Northern Angler. You can typically find me passed out in the chair or dog bed when I'm not looking for some attention. I love spending time in the boat pointing out fish to Brian's clients. Favorite Fly Name: Prom Dress Favorite Snack for the River: Crumbs from Folgarelli's  Piece of gear: Has to be the cooler in Brian's drift boat. It's a perfect place for me to check on your casting technique and keep an eye on your fly.  Go to Beverage: Plain old water
