We're very proud of the quality of guides on our Pro-Staff. Collectively, they represent more knowledge in regards to our sport fisheries than any other group ever assembled.
Members of our Pro-Staff serve a client base that's consistent with their individual personality, style and expectations. If you're interested in booking a trip, consider ahead of time what makes a great day for you: how you like to fish, how long you like to be on the water, language you're comfortable with, if smoking is acceptable or not (for both yourself and the guide), and what's included in the cost of the trip.
We encourage open communication when booking trips. By covering all the bases in advance, neither you nor the guide involved should be subject to uncomfortable surprises. Whether you're a hard-core expert angler wanting to fish dawn-to-dark, or a beginner looking for quality on-the-water instruction, there's multiple members of our Pro-Staff who can serve you professionally.
Our Pro-Staff has proven their quality to us time and time again. Our relationship is simple: they develop the most successful approaches to fisheries throughout the state, and we make sure the gear involved is available to them and our customers within our stores.
