Guide speak

I have had the great fortune to fish with some world class guides. Steve Huff is simply the best salt water flats guide ever. Steve was recently inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame.

When fishing with Steve you know that certain times of day affect his words. Early in the day we all know that optimism is in abundant supply. And that optimism is reflected by Steve’s standard line when his angler blows an early in the day shot. It goes something like this, “we’ll get em!”

Sometimes the early blown shot happens to be the only shot until what I affectionately refer to as one more shot time. When fishing with Huff that is always when the sun is dropping below the horizon. If we miss that last chance the words are entirely different – “Forget it!”
