Because You Booked a Guide | Excuse to Fish #781

Updated: Apr 23



They're probably already waiting for you down at the launch.


You were so excited when you booked the trip, but now it's time to get up and actually get after it. Guides work crazy hard, and you have to put in at least a little effort to make sure you don't waste their time. At least show up.


My friend Mark booked a fishing guide for this morning. Excuse to Fish #781 is for him, and anyone else looking to get on the water with a little help.


If you've never booked a guide, now is the time to try. You learn more from them in a day than you will by yourself all year.


You'll also catch more fish.



Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.


No excuses.
