Colby D. Crossland is living the dream of many anglers by working as a professional fly fishing guide in the beautiful state of Utah. By splitting his time between Dutch John and Moab, Colby is able to keep himself and his clientele in the fish, and in the great seasonal weather offered by these two magical locations.

Colby’s trusty Wirehair Pointer, Forelle Harris Vom Traberwolf (forelle being the German word for trout) can usually be found by Colby’s side and doing what he does best, hunting for fish, birds, lizards, or whatever else he can scare up. What an amazingly handsome pup he is…and what a team!
