“I always try to find a happy medium between teaching a guest and putting them into fish. The two really go hand-in-hand. My job is to make a trip successful but also fun.”
May your waders never leak,
and may you always have a tight line.
Like the Sun Valley Resort, and the entire local Grabher clan, Ewald Grabher’s origins are in Austria. Relatives and fly-fishing brought him to Idaho. It was a trip on the Middle Fork some 30 years ago when he was a boy that precipitated Ewald’s love affair with the state and his decision to someday live here. His first fishing memory is not of a silvery Rainbow trout, however, but rather of a 20-pound Pike. This eye-popping fish spurred the ten-year-old’s interest. “I wanted to know how to catch one myself.” He began fly-fishing at 11 and so began a lifelong obsession.
Flexible. That’s all.
Fun Facts about Ewald
What folks say about fishing with Ewald
“Ewald was absolutely wonderful. I envisioned 4 hours of practicing back casting. Not so. He opened a world of various castings and maneuvers. He reviewed previous Orvis class & Silver Creek info about insects-peering under rocks and imagining the flow of food on the Big Wood and casting where the food is. There was activity where I never imagined-many fingerlings but two good fish. Best of all was his attitude of have fun and relax and dispense with the stress and intensity. I had a great half day and will do it again!!!!”Carol Scheifele-Holmes
“I have recommended Ewald to another fisherman already.”Anonymous
