GuideBox is the solution we wished was available when we first stepped foot on the river. Justin Bilbao and Gregg Shaw, lifelong friends and anglers, each battled through the lengthy learning curve to connect a fish with a fly, spending days and weeks on the water with the wrong flies, the wrong casts, the wrong locations and in the wrong seasons. We knew there had to be a better way to close the gap between an angler’s first day on the water and the critical information needed to give them the best shot at success, and wanted to enlist the help of the people most in touch with the rivers to help. The guides. GuideBox is a collaborative effort between the founders, local guides, and anglers to shape and refine the best products and information for each waterway, with the goal of not only increasing the chances of success on the water, but improving stewardship and conservation of the places we love.
