|Tips on Finding a Fishing Guide
1. Open Communication matters. It is important that you provide
the guide all the information they need so that they will figure
out what kind of fishing trip is best for you. Be sure to be
honest in telling the guide how much experience you have
regarding fishing. This will help them to know what advice and
tips to give you so that you can make the most out of your time.
2. Seek the help of friends and relatives. Ask your friends and
relatives who have fished and if not they may be able to provide
you with some referrals. It is better to ask them about their
experiences, the things that you need to do and things that you
have to look for in a guide. They may be also to provide you
referrals of the guides they have tried and found effective for
them. This will be a chance for you to ask if the guide they are
referring you to has enough knowledge or is accommodating to
3. Browse the Internet. The Internet can provide a lot of
websites where you can find the best guides in a certain
location. You can also post messages and questions regarding the
website and they may be able to find the information you need.
4. Determine if your prospective guide is licensed. It is better
that you know that the person you are working with is working
according to the law. A licensed guide is also sure to be relied
on especially with the matters of integrity and trust. Ask the
guide of their name and phone numbers including the
state-licensing bureau. A guide who is not willing to provide
you the information you are asking for is not worth your time.
5. Find out exactly what you are paying for and how long the
amount would cover. You need to know this information for you to
be able to manage your schedule before the fishing trip and plan
the things that you need to bring which are not covered by the
payment you made. Some include the price for lodging in the
package while other guides may charge extra for that. Asking the
coverage of your fees will also help you assess if the services
you will get is worth the money you will be spending.
6. Get to know the guide. Evaluate if the guide that you will be
working with can get along with you. If not, you will just be
wasting your time and money. Fishing is a time to learn and
enjoy but if the two of you will not get along well, the whole
trip might just be ruined. Get to know the guide first before
you set foot on the boat. Exert a little effort to call the
guide and make a small chat to break the ice and make the two of
you comfortable on the day of the actual fishing.
7. Also make time to find out how long the prospective guide has
been on his job. This will make it easier for you to assess the
level of experience the guide has earned in that field. It is
better that you choose a guide that has been in fishing for many
years. They are the ones who usually have the skills and
teaching techniques that will be of great help to you.
