Its a funy thing, I have had clients insist I fish and others whom would have given birth had I picked up a rod. However I would and am considering booking a michigan guide who is also a great spey caster and yes i will insist he fishes so I can see what a good spey cast looks like.
I am fortunate and my trollong motor is remote controlled so I can run it from anywhere and given I guide fly fisherman I always give them the larger(front) casting deck.

what it boils down to is somebody has more money than time or expertease,you want somebody that knows the area,the habits of what your after,or their method for catching fish or scouting/hunting,its a fair trade,we learm more quicker by monkey see monkey do.a few folks dont want to learn just put me on the fish or get 1 in my line of fire,its all good as long as its legal.been on 1 guided boat for rockfish,been out deep sea fishing on party boats several times,i understand that it is all seek & understand if no game is taken.i do have expectaions that i should at least see some game.wished i was rich $ \:\) been lucky in love so im not complaining...too much \:\) mike243

Love the hat! I think I'm buying one.

I could never guide. Not that I'm even capable, but if I were, I'd hate it. Too friggin' hard, long hours, need too much patience, and I'd want to fish. But mostly, I couldn't take the pressure of having to produce day in and day out.

I "guide" a bunch of people carp fishing and a few for smallies and trout. Knowing you aren't getting a dime takes the sting out of having a mediocre fishing outing. I just couldn't cut the mustard and would never want to try. Hats off to those who have the stomach for it.

C.H you have a funny way of looking at stuff,what i said was 100% true or why else would somebody pay a "guide" what are you getting for your money if you allready know where the fish hold or what the will hit ?.get a grip i never said anybody was over loaded with money,its like any thing else you pay somebody for a service you a-dont know how to do. b-you dont want to do or c-you dont have time to do.you take lots of stuff offensive around here.looks like you have lots of issues & im going to leave you with them.mike243

I have been keeping my mouth shut about Captain Hook for a while now, but you come off as a total rear end just about every time your fingers touch your key board. I can only imagine that you would be the same way in person. If your business is guiding, I wouldnt let anybody know what your business is named, word of mouth and world of forum could ruin your business with an attitude like yours.

Dammit fellas I got a little red when I read Mikes reply. After thinking about it and having a glass of stump water I got his point. YES your paying for a service. NO its not always people who have loads of money. Case in point if a person likes to fish a out of a drift boat, or a certain river is not outboard motor friendly, its convenient to hire a guide and let them handle the logistics.

I have a boat and I can find and catch fish. I use Richard Simms a couple of times a year just for the experience and ease of it. I don't have to worry with the boat and keeping the rods and reels ready. I just get to fish and catch lots of fish. Wesley Parrish said something funny on our last trip with Simms. Richard
handed Wesley (and me and my son) rods that were already baited.
When Wesley caught a fish Richard grabbed the fish and was taking it off the hook. Wesley said "I feel like a dude at one of them dude ranches".
