Shop Dog and Unofficial Mascot
Carson is a 5 year old German Short Hair Pointer. He can often be found welcoming guests into the shop, but will never pass up a good adventure.
Carson is a dog about town and will frequently take himself on walks. All the locals know him and don't hesitate to tell him to "go home Carson!" when dark rolls around.
Owner and Operator
Sloan originally hails from Austin but spent his childhood on frequent getaways to Red River and the Enchanted Circle.
After college he came for a visit and never left! Sloan started Red River Angler and Sport to share his passion for the fishing and the outdoors with both visitors and locals.
When Sloan isn't fishing, you will still likely find him exploring the outdoors - skiing, hiking, camping - he's always up for an adventure.
Dallas is a born and bred Red River local who has been fishing our local waters his whole life. His favorite thing to do in his free time is hike up small tributaries of the Red River in search of the native Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout. He is an expert on our local small waters and knows this country like the back of his hand. When not guiding fishing, he is chasing all local game species - including Deer, Elk, Mountain Lion, Bear, Big Horn Sheep and Yeti - to name a few. You will not have a better time with anyone!
Kevin is one of the most experienced guides on the staff. He speaks trout and it shows when fishing with him. He has countless hours on the river - evident by his tactile guiding style. Ask for Kevin to guide you to target fish in all of our watersheds. Odds are you will catch fish on one of his specialty flies that he has tied. He is a great dude who loves to fish - slightly less than he loves to put his clients on fish. Kevin is your guy!
Erik has more miles in the high country under his belt locally that anyone. Shed hunter by trade, fisherman by day, Erik knows the land and local waters. He has spent his whole life in the area exploring our local waters. He is passionate about the outdoors and loves to share his passion with everyone. Whether boulder-hopping down into the rio or crawling up Cabresto - Erik knows this county, and these fish. No one has better stories to share and you cannot go wrong here!
