Know your guide!
« on: September 05, 2007, 17:42:10 PM »
Each state has its own sets of requirements for guide licenses. Some are basic and others more comprehensive.

Guides that offer services in the U.S. National Forest and Great Smoky Mountains National Park require special permits.

The National Forests in North Carolina website has a listing of outfitter guides, including fishing, that are under permit with the National Forests in North Carolina.  I have provided the link below.

For the Great Smoky Mountains National Park a link to "Commercial Use Authorizations listed by type of service" is available at the bottom of the page at http://www.nps.gov/grsm/parkmgmt/businesswithpark.htm
Fishing Guides are listed here: http://www.nps.gov/grsm/parkmgmt/upload/CUAs%20Type-of-service.pdf

My daughter has been working at Curtis Wright Outfitters since about May and is considering guiding.  She has helped on a couple of group trips so far.  Do we have any female guides that post on the board?

Damselfly post on occasion, however she's no longer a full-time pro guide... just an occasional friendly trip...
