Get to know your guest or guide through detailed profiles and confirmed reviews. Many guides provide links to reviews from other 3rd party sites such as Trip Advisor or Facebook. You may find this helpful when trying to find the perfect fit for you. 



Use our messaging system to learn more about a guide or ask a guest about their listing.

When sending a message to a guide for the first time, guests use the "Contact Me" button on a listing's page. Asking questions is a great way for both trip providers and guests to build a rapport and set expectations.

  • Before booking -- confirm details on specific amenities, who (if anyone) will be there, and what rules and policies apply to the listing.

  • After booking -- be sure to plan check-in details. Continue messaging on Open Angler to keep all your details in one place for easy reference.



Guests pay through Open Angler when they make a booking. Providers receive payment through Open Angler 24 hours after a completed trip. With all the details taken care of, all there is left to do is fish!
