“I am Captain Tom Pryor, and I grew up in Moses Lake, Washington. As a young man, I worked as a ranch hand and guided people for deer and elk in the Cascade Mountains.

I moved to Arizona in 2003 and was introduced to tournament bass fishing and fished with several tournaments such as B.A.S.S., FLW, W.O.N., ABA, Anglers Choice, and Ultimate B.A.S.S. I mainly fished on these tournaments in the western states. I developed a great passion for bass fishing and decided I would like to make fishing my new career.

Over the last several years, I’ve been building custom fishing rods for all different levels of fishermen—from the novice fisherman to the ultimate pro tournament fisherman—and also build customized top-of-the-line fly rods.

I believe Lake Powell is the most beautiful lake in the world, and the fishing is great. So if you’re into a relaxing day or longer of fishing and seeing some of the most majestic sights on Lake Powell, I feel we have put together a great team to accommodate your needs here at “Best of the West Guide Service.” Hope to see you soon.”
