How to Find the All-Inclusive Fishing Vacation That’s Right for You
Let's face it: all-inclusive guided fishing trips in the Northwest are incredible experiences—some of the best sportfishing in the world. However, they're not inexpensive.
Of course you can't really put a price on the adrenaline rush that comes with hauling infeisty Coho (Silver) Salmon or a barndoor Halibut, or the peace and tranquility of fly-fishing punctuated by the thrill of hooking a trophy Rainbow Trout, all against abreathtaking backdrop of the rugged Northwest landscape.
The freezer full of freshfillets you'll bring home will keep you out of the supermarket seafood aisle and save yousmall fortune too.
But when you're spending thousands of dollars per person on a single trip, you want tomake sure it's as close to perfect as possible.
That's why we justify spending hourscombing through Google search results, reviewing fishing lodge websites, addingbookmarks, making inquiries, taking notes...
It's not just the seemingly endless pages you'll get when you search Google for fishinglodges.
Many results won’t even be fishing lodges, and many of the best lodges won’t even show up in the first dozen pages of results.
Some fishing lodge websites are easy to navigate and helpful, but many are downrightawful.
Also, every lodge prices their fishing vacation packages differently. Some include meals, some include return transportation, some are for 5 day trips and some for 4 day trips...
It’s difficult to compare apples-to-apples and know which offer good value and whichdon't.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to quickly find only drive-in fishing lodges on VancouverIsland that offer boats with heated cabins?
Or only remote, fly-in lodges near Bristol Baythat have both saltwater and unguided freshwater fly fishing, and target King, Silver andSockeye?
Google simply won't do this for you—you just can’t search in that way. I found this outthe hard way (you can read the story of that here).
That's when I decided anglers needed a better way, and fishlodges.com was born.
We’ve done the work for you by indexing all the information for over 100 fishing lodges (and growing) throughout the Northwest.
We’ve designed a website that focuses onquickly finding the fishing vacation that offers exactly what YOU want, whatever thathappens to be.
You can search by specific attributes (like province/state and region, fish species, lodgeattributes, trip length, customer ratings, etc.). An interactive map let’s you see where thelodge is located as you filter the list.
We level the playing field by telling you exactly what’s included in the price and showing the “per day per person” package prices forevery lodge, and we show all the details for every lodge in a consistent way.
This lets you do a true “apples-to-apples” comparison. We even show information that isn’t onmost lodge’s own websites!
We also post special deals offered by the lodges—this is a great way to find last-minutedeals and cancelled trips that lodges will sell at a discount.
Finally, we provide aconvenient way to request a specific fishing trip—the request is sent to all lodges thatmeet your specified criteria.
Fishlodges.com is all about saving you a ton of time andmatching you with your ideal fishing vacation. We think fishing in the Northwest issomething everyone should experience.
We're glad to be doing our part to get you off the computer and out into a boat.
