Guidesly is the first mobile platform connecting the world’s anglers to find, review & book guides for guided fishing trips. Guidesly is the solution for the most common issues when booking a fishing trip: no easy way to find guides, hundreds of thousands of guide reviews to sift through, lack of transaction management and no simple, seamless mobile experience. Our app not only allows for you to view, book and connect with fellow fishing guides but also to share conquests with fellow anglers, track your success by location and fish type, and more. From a family fishing trip with children expertise, a weekend excursion away with your group or an elite fisherman searching for that next big catch to share with your buddies, we have all the guides for you.
When browsing through our available guides, all of their availabilities are already factored in! We work with guides to keep their master calendar up-to-date on the Guidesly system so you can always trust that what you’re looking for is accurate.
Whether a quick trip today or a charter for a group in 3 months, you can get real-time availabilities from all of our guides.
