Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
Alright, so it's not an actual soup we are talking about. Rather, this blog is going to shed some light on what "ingredients" go into a guide trip that makes for a successful finished product. A guide trip might not follow a set recipe each time, but the main components typically remain the same!
Ingredient #1: The Guide!
This is why you spend your hard-earned money on a guide trip! A good fly fishing guide knows where to find the fish, what they are eating, and how to educate their guest(s) on the proper techniques to catch those fish. Fly fishing guides can turn a decent fishing day to good and a good fishing day to an unforgettable experience.
Ingredient #2: The Angler!
The angler?! Your guide will put you in the best spots armed with the correct flies. One of the most important ingredients in making a delicious guide trip soup is angler execution. Wildwood Outfitters guides find themselves hoarse at the end of the day. It's not from shouting, but from constant verbal instructions. Fly fishing nuances are many, and a perceptive angler can learn a ton on a guide trip!
Ingredient #3: The Fish!
Ah yes, the fish! We can fish the correct flies, in the best spots, using the proper form, and sometimes the trout still turn their noses up at us. Usually the fish cooperate enough to make for a good day, which is great for us. That's also one of the great benefits of booking a trip with Wildwood Outfitters. Our guides know the waters we fish inside and out, meaning that even the "tough" days normally yield fish in the net!
Cooperation from the fish, a knowledgeable guide, and a perceptive angler who executes all come together to make for a memorable day on the water. While the sights (and smells!) of a guide trip might not totally resemble the scene of a kitchen, a properly planned recipe still results in a fantastic finished product!
