Ray Vermillion/ Guide/Owner
As a Washington State fishing guide have been fishing for Steelhead and Salmon for over 33 years and as you can tell...this is my passion. Being a part of someone else catching there first Steelhead or Salmon or maybe the biggest fish of their life gets me excited too. I am a people person and I love to coach my fisherman and women as they are fighting their fish and to see that look on there face when they finally land it... that's why I am a Seattle Fishing Guide!

Mike Ainsworth, Associate Guide (FT)
"Fishing is my passion" My name is Mike Ainsworth. I have been fishing in Washington state for over seventeen years and Washington fishing guide for almost 8 years. I have fished in many parts in the world from Hawaii to India, If it swims I have tried to catch it and there are a lot more fish to be caught. Fishing is not just a job or a hobby for me it my passion. I have always loved fishing since I was a small boy. I like every thing fishing has to offer. Whether it be the natural beauty of the rivers and forest of Washington, or the thrill of catching a new type of fish. I also love helping people catch fish they have never caught before or may have never been able to catch on there own. One of the best things for me as guide is to see the look on some ones face when they hook in to there first wild steelhead, or there first big salmon or trout. The look on there face and the thrill that they get is what great memories are made of, that goes double for young kids. I still remember the first time my younger brother caught his first steelhead, as vividly as the time I caught my first trout with my father. As new father my self I can hardly wait until my son is of age so I can show him the joy and fun filled days that fishing has brought through the years.
