Video spotlight: Engler

Yeti’s film series on guides is just outstanding. The latest installment, focusing on Colorado northern pike and trout guide Mark Engler, digs pretty deep into the psyche of a socially awkward kid who became a guide because fishing and hunting were the only things that made him happy.

Sound familiar? Today, Engler is a celebrated guide in the Rio Grande Valley, where he’s fished for nearly half a century.

“He’s sacrificed pretty much everything in his life for fishing an hunting,” says one of Engler’s fellow guides. Would you rather have a guide who didn’t?

Just saying.
