Fishing guide training programs in the Chilcotin Mountains of BC


Take the first step to becoming a professional fishing guide on this guide training program in the Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia.  The Angling Guide training program evolved from the need for training to increase the level of professionalism in the industry and to provide a pool of competent angling guides. This program is intended for those wishing to specialize in guided fishing on interior lakes and rivers.  Licensed angling guide instructors teach the fundamentals of fly and spin casting. Students will learn fish habitat identification, fly-fishing technique, fly tying, equipment, fishing regulations, angling guide territory acquisition and management.

The overall objective of this program is to provide participants with a solid base of combined working knowledge and practical skills to become an angling guide. This builds confidence and character, and enables satisfactory production and performance as an entry level angling guide within the industry. The one week Program is intense and is designed for individuals intent on learning and developing the basic skills, knowledge and attitudes that are required by a professional angling guide. It is designed for those seriously interested in a guiding career, and is applicable for individuals with specific goals.

The objectives of this program include a list of specific topics in the fields of business, communications, safety and survival, fish habitat and angling techniques. The participants are tested (including written tests) on their practical skills and working knowledge regarding the topics. The intent is to have each student know the information, so "problem" areas receive extra time. The hours are long and the work is challenging but the rewards are many.
