Maybe you want to squeeze in one more trip, and that means bringing your spouse. Or maybe you just started dating someone who wants to learn how to fish. Whatever the reason, you should know that planning a couples trip can be a little different than a solo trip. Follow these tips to make your date on the water unforgettable.

Set Expectations

Talk ahead of time about what both people are expecting in terms of:

  • Fishing time – how long will you be on the water each day and will you fish every day
  • Accommodations – what are the nice-to-have and need-to-have amenities
  • Food – will there be fancy restaurants or… not

Skills and Abilities

Make sure everyone is up to the task at hand. That will likely mean getting familiar with the gear and maybe even practicing some casting.

Pick a family friendly guide and fishery 

  • Ask the guide if they are experienced with taking out beginners
  • Find out how challenging the fishery is, will a beginner have a good shot at success?
  • Are the conditions suitable for beginners? Will it be too hot, too cold, too rough, etc….?

Many Fin & Field guides are happy to cater a day on the water to couples and families, search our large database of guides and contact your top choices by using our booking tool or calling them directly.
