Ryan Herbert: In 2012 we noticed a need for guide school options in our area, especially for people wanting to get into the industry or just wanting to be safe on the river.
So we decided to develop a two weekend course that includes river safety, first aid CPR, entomology, building client relationships, rowing for the angler, river & still water rigging techniques & professional guiding aspects.

Why is guide school important for aspiring guides?

Ryan Herbert: Our guide school provides a launching pad for anglers who want to take their passion to the next level and become professional guides. Upon completion of our course, participants will have gained the necessary river hours & knowledge required by the state of Colorado to becoming a commercial river guide.
