U also need insurance in PA to be a registered guide. This is in addition to the application, $100 fee, and CPR/First Aid Certification

For boating, whether drift boat or motorized - you need to have completed an accredited Boater's Safety Course (in addition to everything else).

I've always thought all this was a bit excessive seeing that I can guide deer and turkey hunts with no license or anything...?

How to become a guide?
One of the first things you must learn to do that arent required by law is to put down your rod, except for instructional purposes. And if a trout should come to your fly, it should be pulled away to save the feeding fish for your client, no matter how nice the fish.
You prepared to do that?

Its alot easier to say it than do it, and you cant get frustrated (or atleast show it) when they miss those beauties time after time.

I'm terribly sorry if this keeps you up at night, but I have to say I have no idea what you're going on about. Stick with it, though, if you will it it is no dream.

Square makes a vaild point that i previously didn' t think about. If your a guide and your fishing while guiding your taking potential bites away from your clients. Your rod would literally become a training tool only.

It would be really nice if fish would tip for catching them. Nothing crazy just say ten bucks a fish. They flip you a high five with one fin and hand you a ten in the other as you send em back in. Every now and then random hot women show up with beer and wings and even better yet know when to leave. Man, My heavens so much cooler than yours.

if you are ever a guide and have not been told to fish by the client, then you shouldn't have a a rod in your hands in the first place. some lodges ask you to kindly reply no thank you even if asked.

Guiding is a tough job,JOB!
Charter boat Captain,tough JOB.
You have to consistently put CUSTOMERS on fish. It's your JOB.
Fishing is suposed to be fun,relaxing , and a time with friends. Not a JOB.
Just my thoughts.GG

A guide is part observer, analyst, adaptor, manipulator, psychologist and instructor. I'm 100 % sure I've left some appropriate descriptive terms out only because I've forgotten them in my old age.

I've been asked more than once why I guide. There are a number of reasons, one being that there are two people who get excited when my client is successful. Knowing that my client feels better equipped (with technique/experience) for future outings is agood feeling, as well.
