What is Guidesly

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 share conquests with fellow fishers, 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.
