Talked to Joe Ewing at Pacific Fly fishers and I think next week I am going to book a guided trip with him.
You ought to PM some guys on here who have been helpful and say look - I'll buy the beer, bring the lunch, and split the gas - lets go fishing.
Makes some honest friends and take that $400 and make 10 trips out of it. Guides are great... I've blown a lot of cash and have learned a lot. But, good friends are way better.
