What is it like to work as a full time fishing guide and live the grind that comes with it? What is it like to spend half the year in Alaska, the other half in the woods of Michigan? I sit down with Robbie at Blue Fly B&B in King Salmon and discuss how he got his job and whether his expectations were met when the dream became a reality.
About Jeff Mishler
Jeff Mishler is a fifth generation Oregonian who's life work is hard to quantify. Father, writer, photographer, television commercial director, environmentalist, video producer/distributor, website manager, hunter, angler and lifelong recreationist who lives a fly-by-the-seat-of-yourpants mantra. If he’s not in his office writing another essay or developing a show concept, he’s chasing mallards and pheasants with his lab Hailey, running his jet sled up a local river to a sweet steelhead run, setting up on a screaming bull elk with bow in hand or conspiring with his small circle of equally affected steelhead bums while downing healthy portions of really good Oregon beer.

If you are interested in accessing new areas previously restricted as private lands in Oregon, this episode of Fin and Fire with Jeff Mishler, Brandon and I discuss the implementation of a software program that simplifies the process of reserving hunting opportunities in our state, the growth of the program, and it's future. We also talk turkey hunting. Go figure.
