Pat Jaeger – Eastern Sierra Guide Service, Bishop, Ca

My objective as a guide is to understand the craft in such detail that I can simplify the essential fundamentals of the sport. And streamline the learning curve to give the average angler the freedom of fishing on his or her own. I can also break down the technical aspects of the sport and offer the more advanced anglers a new arrow for their quiver. I enjoy a little sweat on my brow getting off the beaten path. I strive for that look in a client’s eye when I hit the bull’s eye by matching the vision of the perfect fishing location or when the client learns a new method of tricking elusive trout.
