Guides in Manitoba are not allowed to carry firearms and cannot shoot at all with clients. Clearly stated with guiding license. Bear guides may carry a firearm for personal and client protection only. I was a fishing guide when I was a kid. I started at age 13, and went 6am to 6pm every day, all summer. Basically lived on tips. I didn't wet a line, unless the clients were having problem with presentation, and I would show them my techniques for catching walleye and other targeted species. If we were short a fish or two for shore lunch, I would fish for a short while until we had enough for me to give them a good shore lunch experience, then my rod was put away. By the time I was 16, I hated fishing and quit guiding. Too much too young I guess. It took about 10 years before I picked up a rod and started enjoying fishing with my friends again. I usually go out once or twice a week during the summer and that is enough. Point being, is that sometimes doing something for a living spoils the recreation side of the sport. I have two good friends who are hunting guides, and neither hunts for waterfowl at all anymore. Really too bad.
