Just have a contract that people sign that say's your not responsible for anything..just like the Rv parks around Fork make you sign.

Then, no insurance needed.

But if someone gets hurt, and can prove negligence then that waiver is worthless. No waiver protects you against negligence.

Get some insurance, it's probably pretty cheap.

Incorporate yourself as a LLC so that if your brought into court for negligence your company assets are on the line rather than your personal assets and then get an umbrella policy. Sounds complicated but its not. A capable CPA can help with it and keep your books up.

+1 Nailed it..... time on the water, time on the water & PERSONALITY is key. Everyone will have those days the fish just don't wanna play. Hardest part about being a guide is days like that making sure your clients still have a good time and want to come back and fish with you again.
