Book your Rambling Reports Guide Service Trip Today!

Coming soon is an online form you can fill out. In the meantime, e-mail me at or call my 24/7 cell at 847-732-7333 to book your trip. For your own benefit, please contact me at least 7 days prior to the date you're looking to fish - it's really tough to work with less notice. Here's what I'll need to know.

  • Your Name (and the names of anyone else in your party)

  • How Many Individual Clients (more than 2 clients usually require additional guides)

  • Your Home Phone Number, Cell Phone Number, and Address

  • Trip Date or Dates (check my Guide Calendar for current availability)

  • Time (when do you want to start)

  • Location & Species (i.e. Iowa, SE WI, Salmon, Steelhead, Inland Trout etc..)

  • Service Level (Pro-Guide or Team Fish Trip?)

  • Length of Guide (WI Trips are 4 or 8 hours, IA trips are 1 or more day trips)

  • Equipment Level (will you be going with standard, included gear, or renting Bamboo/Centerpin?)

  • Your Experience Level (an honest assessment of your skills is helpful)

  • Any special equipment needs

  • Special Physical Needs (dietary, allergy, accessibility, medical conditions etc..)

  • Emergency contact info
