Single Angler Club
Many of us find ourselves in a situation where for various reasons we find that we do not have anyone to travel with, therefore many people miss out a fishing holiday abroad as they believe there is no alternative.
To help customers in this situation we started our “Single Anglers Club” This all began with a few customers calling in as they wished to travel and fish. Big Game Fishing off the shore of Costa Rica, or maybe Fly Fishing on one of Alaska many rivers. But alas, their friends for various reasons could not travel with them.
Apart from offering these customers destinations where they could both travel and fish as a single angler (which 90% of the time involved significant supplements) we started to advertise and look for other Sportquest Holidays customers who would like to share a fishing trip with them. This then allowed two or more people to make new friendships, share in great experiences all at the same time not having to pay any additional supplements. Before we knew it the “Single Anglers Club” was born.
Simply click on the link and follow the prompts. It will ask you for your name, email, phone number, where it is that you are interested in fishing and what you wish to catch. Once you have submitted the basic information we will call you to discuss your requirements. Once we have a good understanding of the things you are looking for we will create a list in our single angler section on our website. We will then keep in touch with you letting you know as soon as we have any interest in sharing any trips with you.
Once you have browsed through the single anglers listings looking for a fishing partner and you find someone with similar interests, click on the enquire button at the bottom of their listing this will then take you to a contact page. Fill out the required fields and send it to us. We will call you to discuss your interests and then if suitable we will contact the other party and start to put you both in touch with each other.
If both parties are in agreement we will pass on each of your details so you can make contact with each other before confirming the trip, It is up to you if you just communicate by e-mail, phone or indeed you even arrange to meet up beforehand.
Many destinations and trips are based on twin rooms, however where ever possible we can and do book single rooms. This may result in there being a small supplement to pay to ensure a single room.
A difficult one to answer but as the average age of our customers is between 50 and 65 this gives you a good average, however, we do also have customers travel with us from 18 to 90 years of age.
We can not guarantee that all people will be of the same standard as we can only rely on what people explain as their fishing experience. However we do everything we can to put only suitable people together.
We had an absolutely amazing time. Our guide Salamao Lopes on board the Balancal was an absolute gentleman from start to finish. You are dealing with a really good person and fisherman here so I'd advise to keep working with him into the future. Overall, we were very happy and I'll be in touch again in two years time to book another trip of a lifetime. Thanks for all your help.
What an amazing holiday from start to finish, the Sailfish where on fire and the Roosterfish are just something else. The accommodation, boats, guides and staff could not do enough for us all. I was apart of a group trip organised by yourself, I had never met any of the other members of the team. But your Single angler service allowed me to find like minded people and even talk to them before we met at the airport for the first time.
Thank you for putting together this single angler week we had an amazing time and we all made some new friends. We are already planning a return trip.
