Gunnison River Guides‘ Jason Booth, is one of those rare people who not only love to catch fish, but who also get a thrill out of seeing other people catch fish. So when a neighbor’s 10-year-old son, Max Leonard, showed some interest in fly fishing, Jason told him jump in the boat. With some encouragement and guidance by Jason, Max has become one heck of a stick.

According to Jason, “Max is a better angler at 10 years old than 90 percent of the people I fish with. Casting, mending, playing fish—he is AWESOME!”
