Double Diamond X Ranch
We're looking for a fly fishing and hiking guide starting in mid or late May running through mid September.
The guide will lead guests in stream-side walking-wading fly fishing tours on the South Fork of the Shoshone River as it runs through the Ranch. Fishing tours focus on helping guests learn about the timing and types of insect hatches and how they affect angler success, and on assisting guests in catching wild trout. The guide will also lead interpretive hiking tours on the adjacent Shoshone National Forest and Washakie Wilderness that are are designed to inform guests about the region's flora and fauna, historic landscape processes, geology, and conservation issues such as endangered or invasive species. The fly fishing/hiking guide will also be expected to perform other hospitality-related duties such as assisting with orienting guests, providing assistance with events and evening functions, tending bar, and assisting in landscape maintenance. Room and all utilities, a weekly food allowance, along with tips and salary commensurate with experience, will be provided.
In addition to fly fishing and guiding experience, applicants should have a solid background in the management and conservation of fish and wildlife in the greater Yellowstone region, as well as an understanding of landscape processes and conservation issues that are important in the area. A passion for fly fishing and wilderness hiking is a must. The Ranch is in grizzly bear country so proficiency with bear spray and firearms is a plus. Most importantly, hospitality is the focus of Double Diamond X Ranch, so applicants must be energetic, outgoing, friendly, patient, and have a good sense of humor. No pets please.
