Avid outdoorsman Brian King weighs in on outfitters or guides, whichever you want, their merits and demerits. If I haven't been to a spot before, it's a new river and a new stretch. I always get a guide. I mean, I think they're just worth their weight in gold and might even take them twice. But then after that, I love to take my own boat and venture out and practice what they've taught me. So it just kind of depends. But I'm a big fan of getting guides and I think it's absolutely worth the money. If you're going to travel and have a destination trip like that, you want to have some success. And it just the probability goes higher and higher with a guide with you. In my experience, Brian, some guides are absolutely tremendous. I agree with you totally worth every penny. But then sometimes they just seem like they're in it for the money and you don't experience any success. Yeah, and I get that. I mean, we've all we've all got a job. We all got to make a living. But I think the best way for them to build a great long term clientele is have them have a great day on the river regardless. And I've had some great guides, both fishing and hunting. I'm a big fan. And, you know, the great fishing guides are the ones that will always tell you when not to come. That's always a good indication. If you've got a trip booked and they call you and say, hey, the weather is not great or the water's up or it's a little muddy, why don't you push back a week or so? That's a great guy. The ones that just say come regardless, they get crossed off my list pretty quick. And you can always ask for references.
