The Guy Who Catches More Fish Than Anyone

Ever since he was kid, all Mark Engler wanted to do was hunt and fish everyday

If you're a serious hunter or fisherman, you know the type—the solitary guide who's seen it all, who always catches more fish than everyone else. In southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, that guy is Mark Engler. He's been fishing the Rio Grande Valley for 46 years, ever since he was an infant. He has an intimidating mullet, a reputation as the best guide in the valley, and a string of ex-wives who didn't like competing with hunting and fishing for his attention. He's sacrificed everything in his life to his craft but couldn't have it any other way. Ever since he was a kid, all he wanted to do was hunt and fish everyday. And that's exactly what he still does.
