How to Prep for an International Fishing Trip

Fishing and traveling are two wonderful hobbies. When you combine them with an international destination you have the ultimate vacation. If you have never done an international fishing expedition you may not know how or where to begin. Here are a few suggesting on how to get started.

Advanced planning is very important. Starting a year or two ahead of time is not unreasonable. It takes time to get everything coordinated and to determine the best week of fishing.

One of the first things is to check the requirements for travel in the country where you want to fish. Find out if you need a passport or a visa or some other document to travel in the country. Then get these documents in order.

If you are going to spend the money for a trip you might as well hire a guide. It is important for a guide to be fluent in your native language. Good communication is important when retaining personal services, especially in a foreign country. Even if you speak with the guide on the telephone, follow up everything with writing. Clarify what will be provided and what you will have to provide. Confirm all prices and deposits in writing.

A good guide will be able to tell you which week of the year will offer the best fishing. Sometimes weather may change and ruin the best laid plans but an experienced guild will keep you informed.

Ask to see his fishing video’s to get an idea of what to expect.

A guide can also help you with lodging suggestions. Ask him where most of his foreign clients stay. Then explore the internet for other places to stay and contact them. Make sure there is internet access so you can play online fishing games or other fishing games. Then decide which one will meet your needs.

Purchasing your airline ticket will be your final step and commitment. Watch the fares as they may change during peak times. Watching the prices for several months will help you get the best price possible.
