By JOHN HOLYOKE Spend a few hours in a boat with a good Maine guide and you soon realize that there's a big difference between them and you. Yes, you may spend a lot of time fishing. Yes, you may know plenty about the fish you pursue. And yes, if you sit back and pay attention, you'll learn more in a guide's on-water classroom than you would have thought imaginable. When you think about it, that makes perfect sense. After all, if you spend a weekend or two a month on the water - or...
