The Guide

*Hi my name is Rick La Point. I grew up with fishing in my veins. Ever since I can remember I was holding a rod and reel. My dream was to fish for a living as long as I can recall. Now I am living my dream.
*My specialties are teaching anglers the refined techniques I have learned over the years. 
I am also a  fisher of men. 
*I became a Christian in 1996 while I was driving down the road listening to Christian Radio. Now
I am doing what others dream, for a living!  
*I love to share my testimony with others. And I owe it all to my personal savior Jesus Christ.  

Now that you know a little about my life, and you decide to hire me, that's great. I look forward to our time together and know we will have a great day fishing!
