Byron comes to us by way of western New York where he developed his love of hockey, both as a spectator and player. He started his guiding career in southern Oregon, and like the steelhead he chased, he ultimately swan upstream and beached in the Alpine area. When not guiding or trying to find new water to fish, his main focus is trying to be the perfect husband. (it's really not as sweet as it sounds, it's truly self serving so he can remain a guide the rest of the year) Byron started guiding for Pioneer Anglers during the summer of 2017 and is back again this year.
Guide: Jim Andras
Favorite Fly: Highly Classified
Favorite Time to Fish: Steelhead season!
Jim Andras stepped into guiding for the Telluride Angler 25 years ago and never looked back. His love of wild trout and travel eventually led him to guide in Chile, Alaska, Kamchatka and Mongolia. Today, Jim calls Southern Oregon home and guides the Rogue and Klamath Rivers. He considers each new day on the water his best, occasionally takes a decent photograph and supports organizations that work to ensure better habitat, policy and protection for native, wild fish. This summer, Jim looks forward to guiding for Pioneer Anglers, dry flies and Snake River Cutthroat!

Mike is the elusive guide/shop helper/minion/curmudgeon that just appears and picks up the slack and then disappears again.
