But when you're spending thousands of dollars per person on a single trip, you want to make sure it's as close to perfect as possible. That's why we justify spending hours combing through Google search results, reviewing fishing lodge websites, adding bookmarks, making inquiries, taking notes...
It's not just the hundreds of thousands of results you'll get when you search Google for fishing lodges. 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 downright awful.
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 which don't.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to quickly find only drive-in fishing lodges on Vancouver Island that offer boats with heated cabins? Or only remote, fly-in lodges near Bristol Bay that have both saltwater and unguided freshwater fly fishing, and target King, Silver and Sockeye?
Google simply won't do this for you. I found this out the hard way (you can read the story of that here). That's when I decided the world needed a better way, and fishlodges.com was born.
We’ve done the work for you by researching Northwest fishing lodges, indexing all their information in an easily searchable database. We’ve designed a website that focuses on quickly finding the fishing vacation that offers exactly what you want.
You can search by specific attributes and search by location using a map. We level the playing field by telling you exactly what’s included in the price and showing the “per day per person” package price for every lodge. We even show information that isn’t on most lodge’s own websites, and we show all the details for every lodge in a consistent way. This lets you do a true “apples-to-apples” comparison.
Finally, we provide a convenient way to request a specific fishing trip. All our lodge partners that can provide what you’re after can then bid for your business. This is a great way to find cancelled trips that lodges will sell at a discount.
fishlodges.com is all about saving you a ton of time and matching you with your ideal fishing vacation. We think fishing in the Northwest is something everyone should experience. We're glad to be doing our part to get you off the computer and out into a boat.
