Our Story

Graybill's Guide Formula began over 34-years ago when Rick Graybill started testing scent formulas on charter boats in Puget Sound.  Rick soon began his own guiding service and became well renowned fishing the Columbia Rivers Hanford Reach, Lake Chelan, the Snake and Clearwater Rivers in Idaho.

In 2004, Shane Magnuson bought the formulas from Rick Graybill and started Northwest Bait & Scent.  Soon, he added the original Salmon and Steelhead formulas and now shares the product with fishermen across the United States.

At Northwest Bait and Scent, it is our mission to provide Anglers and guides with the opportunity to enhance their fishing experience with a Guide Proven formula, that has out-fished many others thru the years.
