The Value of
Good Boats & A Good Guide
If you have
never been on a guided fishing trip you may wonder just what a guide offers that you can't
do for yourself. And if you have been on a guided fishing trip, you know what it is that
makes or breaks a good guided trip. You need an experienced guide who pilots a safe and
comfortable fishing boat.
White River is not a rough-flowing river with rapids, it does have a strong, flat current,
and it is easy to sink a boat if you aren't familiar with these currents. Running the
shallow shoals and strong currents requires the use of a long, narrow, flat-bottomed
watercraft called a "John" boat. An experienced river pilot with a good John
boat makes your trip seem safe and effortless.
in the boat is also important. You need room to move about from time to time, which means
a wider, longer boat. You need a swivel chair that makes sitting down a comfortable
experience for several hours while turning to cast from one side of the boat to the other.
You need room for your feet, your gear, and a place to land all those fish you'll catch.
All of these reasons are why Beard's uses the best river John boats money can buy. You are
paying for more than our knowledge of how to catch trout. You are also paying for boating
comfort and safety!
