Colby Acuff

Colby, (Aka JR.) was born and raised fishing and hunting in north Idaho. Growing up in Coeur d Alene he became addicted to fly fishing for native west slope cutthroat at the age of 11 while fishing with family and friends. He is also a Country Western Musician who frequently tours around the Northwest.  While he’s the newest member of the NWO family he certainly doesn’t lack experience. He frequently nets monster cutties regularly and has a knack for finding great fishing even on those tough days when most anglers are ready to call it quits. Colby loves guiding and has been a wonderful addition to the team.
