Rus Schwausch (“Big Worm”)

Rus has been fishing, adventuring and guiding in Alaska since 1995. Little did he know – hell, he was only 23 – that his first trip to Alaska, a 100 mile unguided float trip with his buddies, would send his life in a completely new direction. He’s a former engineer, turned fishing guide, turned outfitter. Plus, he’s a Wilderness First Responder and U.S. Coast Guard licensed. Read more about his Alaska fishing guide story here.
