Employment Opportunities

Besides the incredible fishing and unique places that we operate, what makes Murphy's special and sold out year after year with repeat guests, is the dedication its crew provides to guests in exceeding their expectations with the warmest and friendliest hospitality available.

Guides - Live to Fish & Fish to Live

The highest standards in equipment and professional experience is what our guests encounter with our guide team. Members are seasoned veteran professional guides, not summer time students looking to subsidize school towards another kind of career. Many of our team members are year round guides on both the ocean and fresh water fisheries on Vancouver Island's West Coast. If a permanent professional career in guiding is on your agenda and you live a positive and healthy lifestyle, then please consider contacting us. Although positions rarely come up, having your application on hand with us could mean the angling career of a lifetime. *2017 - Two positions available!
