So what is the point of this post you ask?...Well, recently I visited a high-profile, marketing guide's site. On it there were at least a dozen "grip and grin", hero images of the guide with hefty trout, not a single image of a client with a trout!......hmmm??...just asking.

A SIDE NOTE:
My take on a competent fly angling guide is that one has both technical and great communication/people skills...and the ability to move from one talent to the other...seamlessly. That translates into getting one's client into fish...for THEIR hero shot.
