The Washington Outfitters & Guides Association members provide outfitted services to the recreational public in our state.

Outfitted services are those in which the outdoor professional furnishes the equipment, livestock, all necessary tackle or gear, and the expertise needed to provide an outstanding recreational experience to those who may engage his or her services in the outdoors. 

Our association is dedicated to the protection of the priceless natural assets of the northwest and to the fair and equal access to our natural resources for everyone. For many people, the outfitted trip is the only practical means of enjoying the rich heritage and timeless beauty of Washington. Most of all, our members are committed to the highest possible quality of the outdoor adventure.

We are equally devoted to the concept of low impact on our wilderness...and to the wisest use of our fish, game, and wilderness reserves. 

When you choose a professional outfitter to help you plan and enjoy your vacation adventure, you are gaining generations of experience and knowledge, unquestioned skill and dedication, and a remarkable opportunity to fully enjoy the tradition and excitement of Washington's unique wild resources. You are almost certainly insuring the success of your family expedition because you've decided to engage the services of an outdoor professional. By leaving the details and most of the day to-day work to the outfitter and his or her staff, you have time to relax and really enjoy your back-country vacation. 

When you pick an Association outfitter for your excursion, you have lengthened the odds greatly for success.
