Guidesly Pro gives Fishing Guides and Charter Captains an all-in-one mobile app to book customers, manage schedules and transactions, and organize their business!

BOSTON – September 21, 2020 – Guidesly ( announces the launch of Guidesly Pro – a new way for Guides to manage their fishing trips and reach a larger pool of anglers. Through a seamless experience from website to mobile, Guidesly Pro is the world’s first mobile application to connect trusted Fishing Guides with those who love to fish. A companion app for consumers will soon be available from Guidesly: allowing anglers across the United States to seek, find, and book Guides from their smartphones.

Guidesly Pro App – Mobile App for Fishing Guides: 

The Guidesly Pro platform is the first-of-its-kind mobile application and website experience that connects Fishing Guides with anglers in search of trusted fishing pros. Driven by requests from top Guides across the U.S., the Guidesly Pro app is designed to help Guides promote, grow, and manage their business through unprecedented ways of casting ‘a bigger net’ to catch and land more customers.

David Lord, Guidesly founder and CEO explains: “As a lifelong fisherman who’s been on countless guided trips, I’ve seen first-hand the day-to-day challenges Guides face. In today’s competitive market, a Guide’s fishing skills and expertise (like knot tying, fly selection, and best spots to fish) aren’t enough to guarantee their success. They also need to be effective at promoting themselves, customer satisfaction, business development, and other tasks. Addressing those needs inspired me to launch Guidesly and build powerful, easy to-use solutions to eliminate Guides’ pain points and give them all they need in order to succeed.”

Before Guidesly, Fishing Guides lacked a unified solution that offered everything they need to connect with consumers and easily manage trips. Guidesly Pro brings features never before offered to Guides into a single application including:

  • Self-management of their calendar, through which customers view a live inventory of Guide availability and choose a convenient day and time to book a fishing trip.
  • Coordination of resources and team members for multi-Guide services
  • Dynamic pricing allows guides to charge more during peak seasons and times and less when it is slow to ensure Guides maximize their revenue.
  • Leverage Guidesly’s ‘Live Fishing Trip Tracker’ to get instant reporting of weather and water conditions, gauge information, and other details to help Guides track and record when & where they were most successful.
  • Live In-App messaging with customer to send reminders/confirm meetup location.

“Guidesly Pro gives Guides like me what we’ve wanted for years,” said John Rogers, Vermont-based licensed fly-fishing Guide and former Orvis vice president. “While I love all its features, I especially like that Guidesly will make managing my calendar and schedule easy and secure, and that I’ll have a one-stop payment system, for everything from deposits, balance due, and even tips.”
