Alex Ermatinger and I met just a few hours before sitting down to record this episode, as he passed through town on his way to an antelope hunt. Alex is a hunter, angler, and guide who moves around throughout the year chasing different seasons across the country. In the summer, Alex guides in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison chasing rainbows and browns, including during the legendary salmonfly hatch. He spends his falls in Michigan, helping clients land Chinook salmon to take home for the table. In this episode, we cover a little of everything, from guiding stories to a brief history of Pacific salmon in the Great Lakes.
