Captain
Eric Richins

Member since February 2020 Boulder City, United States
Background
I've been fishing my whole life, mostly fly fishing. As I got into guiding wilderness trips and working as a wilderness river ranger, my fishing techniques and interests grew. After over a decade of guiding and getting a Master’s degree in Freshwater Ecology, I decided I should run my own outfit.
Techniques
I am a "do it all" angler. I love trolling, jigging, bass fishing, live bait, lures, and handlining on the bottom. When it's good, I like to fly fish with dries more than anything.
