Why choose Brian Carper’s Guide Service?

The answer is simple… because with BCGS, it’s all about you!!!

When you put down your hard earned money for a day of fishing, it should be YOUR DAY. We don’t keep our best spots to ourselves and let you settle for the leftovers. We don’t believe that you should be charged the outrageous prices that are the norm these days in the guiding business. We treat our customers like friends. Your total satisfaction is all we’re concerned with, and we put our money where our mouth is. That is why we have committed ourselves to being the hardest working guide service in the business.

Our goal is to make top notch, guided fishing trips affordable for everyone. After all, spending quality time with friends and family is what it’s all about. We’re not in the fishing business… we’re in the relationship business. Our client base has been built one memory at a time. Put your faith in me and my team, we’ll never have to ask for it again.
