The Rookie


It sucks being the rookie.
The abuse. The practical jokes. The shit jobs.
And it’s worse when you’ve been the rookie for six years.

That’s right. Six years.


So let’s give a little extra viz to the “new” guy,
The guy at the bottom of the seniority totem pole,
The guy looking up.

He damn well deserves it.



Note: That Tyler’s been "the rookie" for six years now speaks volumes about the guide staff at the Royal Coachman. Top notch. Experienced. And treated well by the lodge, it would appear, thus the low (actually NO) turnover. It’s a darn good crew and I thoroughly enjoyed fishing with each and every one of them. Even the new guy.

Tyler's the best "Rookie" I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Well said... well done!

He's a good one, no doubt. The gray beard, Bob, isn't so bad himself. :-)

Tyler was the rookie (and a damn good one) when I was there with my son in 2010.

Love that lodge and crew. Great memories.

A great place and a great bunch of folks, Tosh. You're absolutely right.
