    Because I think it is important to spend my money at local fly shops and support the local economy of where I'm fishing...

    we all believe in supporting local shops... but the question was about guides and there are some great "local" guides as well as guides who have fished over there every fall for decades.

    i guess local is what you define it as.

    If you know what steelhead water looks like, it takes about a half a day to learn the GR from Boggans to the State Line. The number of other people who know what they are doing are going to be fishing around each other, hitting the same holes every day. Not exactly a steep learning curve since there are about a dozen (give or take a couple) really good spots.
