What Does It Take to Be a Fishing Guide in Alaska?

Firmness of mind and an unbridled courage to rise in the face of hardship or challenge.

To respect the land and that bounty that it produces but to never take more than what the land has to give.

It demands that the spirit retreats inside of itself to a simpler, more primal time in which survival was not guaranteed.

When man had to respect the balance between nature and progress.
