LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES…
The Guide Shop is proud to present our website of fishing products and services that we maintain upholding the quality and effectiveness sought by anglers. The Guide Shop’s humble beginnings began decades ago as a tackle shop along one of the best Steelhead Rivers in the Country. Pete Peterson, the owner, grew up as a young boy fishing the rivers with his father, and always dreamt of owning property along one of these beautiful rivers. Pete, bought a home along the Wilson River, and started out by guiding and selling a few lures out the house. Before he knew it, people were coming in from all over Western Oregon for guided trips and to buy his famous Salmon eggs and hand tied tackle. Eventually the store grew with time; even to the point of having a restaurant, River's Edge Grill, which is famous for the best clam chowder, fresh seafood entrees, half-pound gourmet burgers, homemade desserts, and the best smoked salmon. Our fabulous Manager and Head Chef, Toy McMahon, and our dedicated staff of Dinner Chef Barb, Breakfast Chef Margaret, Liz, Melissa, and Allison are eagerly waiting to assist you.
In 1999, we decided to publish a website so we could reach out to people across the country and share our excellent products and true love of fishing. As fishermen ourselves, we have an expert understanding of how important it is to make available the best products and services, which will yield the most enjoyable and productive fishing trip for you.
From the beginning we have been committed to research and development; our manufactured products have proven successful in not only ease of use and application, but in performance. Our salmon egg cures are guide tested and salmon approved. Keeping with the highest quality, all other non-manufactured fishing products that we carry, offer the very best in material and design.
If you are not satified with our products purchased from our online store, simply return it for an exchange or complete refund. A preauthorization is required for our salmon egg products. We realize that our company’s success depends in keeping you, our customer, satisfied.
WHY YOU WANT TO BUY FROM US!!!
First, our business is operated on the premise that our patrons are #1. Without you, we have no fishing stories, no friendships, no discussion of fishing techniques, and no pictures to share.
Secondly, by “you” being with us, your dollars are helping the programs that we actively support and donate to foundations like the Oregon Heritage Foundation, an organization which has been instrumental in the development of boat accesses and rearing ponds.
Please be a part of our big family and see the difference.
