With everything going on, we knew that many of our guide friends would inevitably be affected. While we're working hard at raising some awareness for these guys, we also want to bring the fun side of guiding straight to all of you that might not be able to get on the water with one of them right now! Starting with our friend, Capt. Jamie Hough, we'll be hosting guides on our accounts so that they can share a day on the water as well as answer any questions you might have! So, without further ado, check out the first installment below.
And if you want to grab the hat or tee that Jamie's rocking in the video, you can do here:

Wow, first things first thanks to Jamie for showing us a day-in-the-life and answering your questions! Also, thanks to everyone that tuned in on the story. We quickly realized that all these guys are going to have a ton to share. We’ve decided to make this a series of IGTV videos so we can answer more questions and show more of their days. You can find timestamps for questions below and if you want to skip straight to helping out guides and some info about Jamie’s non-profit Southeast Relief, you can skip straight to 7:55.
