Hi my name is Robert Kratzer, owner of Anglers Guide Service and Alaska Kingfishers.
I am 40 years old, born and raised in the outdoors of Washington. I spent most of my life in Redmond, Washington moving to Forks, Washington when I was 22, where I now live with my wife Traci and my two girls Kaitlyn and Bailee.
My family did a lot of camping and fishing in both Eastern and Western Washington and that is where my dad taught me how to wade small streams and rivers fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout. As I grew, my interest in salmon and Steelhead also grew. If I wasn't doing school work or wrestling I was reading about these bigger fish. As soon as I could drive I fished every possible salmon and steelhead stream that I could.
For the last 22 years I have operated Anglers Guide Service in the Fall, Winter, Spring and late summer.
I am also the owner of another operation in Alaska called Alaska Kingfishers, which targets the largest run of King Salmon in Alaska during the months of June and July. (www.alaskakingfishers.com) Back on the home front I stay busy fishing for fall Chinook and silvers and chasing trophy steelhead. When I am not fishing I spend my time with my girls chasing Caribou in Alaska or mule deer and blacktail deer in Washington with my recurve bow.
After being a guide for 22 years I have come to realize that I enjoy teaching and watching my clients catch these magnificent fish more then catching them myself. We are forever developing new techniques and trying to stay on the cutting edge of salmon and steelhead fishing scene. I am State and coast guard licensed, fully insured and first aid and CPR trained.
Associate partner to Angler's Guide Service. Hi, my name is Bill, owner of Bill's Guide Service.

I guide not only our Puget Sound area rivers, close to home, but also the Olympic Peninsula rivers as well.
