    History of the Maine Guide:

    She Was Maine’s First Licensed Guide

    Cornilia Maine Guides OnlineCornilia Thurza Crosby, or “Fly Rod”, Maine’s first Registered Maine Guide

    On March 19, 1897, The Maine legislature passed a bill requiring hunting guides to register with the state. Maine registered 1316 guides in that 1st year. The honor of receiving the first Maine guiding license went to Cornilia Thurza Crosby, or “Fly Rod”, as she was affectionately known to friends across the country. Crosby first discovered her love for the wilderness when, on the advice of her doctor, she left her job in a bank to seek “a large dose of the outdoors”. This prescription brought her to Rangeley, Maine, where she found work housekeeping in some of the large hotels in the area. She became friends with the local guides, and from them she learned the lore of the woods and the pleasures of camping, hunting, and fishing.

        First let me apologize for neglecting to post these past several months. My position within MDIFW is a shared position between wildlife division, fisheries division, and hatcheries division. While that fact makes the position itself very exciting and adventurous, it also means that I spend a considerable amount of time away from my desk and […]
