FAQ for Guides and Charters

Trying to post reports or modify your listing? Please read our brief FAQ if you're lost...

ARE YOU A SITE MEMBER ALREADY?

You need to create a site account before you can create a guide listing or post fishing reports. Just click "Register" in the site header to get started and follow the directions. If you have an existing guide or forum account from our old site, you shouldn't need to register again.

 

 

HOW DO I POST A FISHING REPORT?

Our system for posting a fishing report has changed a bit from the old site. Reports are now posted in our forums rather than in the Guide Directory, but they will feed to the Guide Directory and to our site homepage, which gives your business great exposure and informs our readers about any fishing hot spots.


1. Log in to the site by clicking on the link in the top header anywhere in the site. (see example) If you have an existing guide account from our old site, it should work here. If you can't log in, please use the "forgot password" link

 

2. Navigate to our forums. You can do this by clicking on the "Forums" link anywhere on the site.

 

3. Choose the General Fishing Reports category in the forum list (see example). You will then click on your region in the Fishing Reports forum. (Please post fly-fishing reports in the Fly Fishing Reports forum farther down the page)

 

4. Click "Post New Thread" to add your report.

 

For best results, upload photos elsewhere (In our own Forum Photo Gallery or at a site like Photobucket) and use the [IMG] code to add photos to your reports. You can also embed YouTube videos in reports now, or add links back to your site. When posting your fishing reports, please include your location and the species you’ve been catching IN THE THREAD TITLE. Also, please watch your spelling and punctuation in these headlines, as they very well may appear in a prominent position on our home page. For optimal click-thrus, keep it punchy and clean!

 

HOW DO I CREATE A GUIDE LISTING OR MODIFY AN EXISTING ONE?
