I guide out of a Koffler 12-foot aluminum white-water capable pram on the following notable Canadian Rocky Mountain rivers The Bow River, The Red Deer River, The Ram River and The Old Man River. These are productive rivers and popular trout angling destinations for visitors coming to Alberta Canada. I am familiar with these areas as well as others within those watersheds.
On my trips you will be in the bow of the boat throughout the float with all the prime water all the time. I focus my full attention on your individual needs, through focused interactive instruction on the fly, to ensure a memorable experience. I provide a supportive environment where you gain knowledge through my direct observation and participation. I also guarantee that you will receive 100% of my attention and guidance throughout the entire float trip; in a setting that’s relaxed, informative and friendly. My aim is for you to have a rewarding experience that will take you to your next level in skill and understanding.
For our guided float trips on bigger rivers, I can only accommodate one guest per trip. For walk wade trips on smaller east slope streams I can accommodate up to two or even three clients. When I hold schools, I like to limit them to three participants and no less, this way it is worth our effort and the participants get the most out of my instruction. I will work with you to set up learning outcomes.
I believe my format and coaching style is unique and proven; my experience and credentials are unparalleled in the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. There is no other outfitter/guide or service business presently offering this level of instruction across all aspects of Fly-Fishing from one source. People have commented on how comfortable they where and found their experience informative but most importantly it almost always elevated their skill level. For trips I recommend scheduling mid week (Wednesday/Thursday) and avoid crowds this allows for the most opportunities. I find mid week is when the fish are less pressured and more inclined to feed.

Suggested Items to Bring
Breathable waders and felt soled wading boots to ensure proper fit and comfort (felt for safety on slippery rocks).
Rain Jacket, Fleece full zip hoody with hood, and warm jacket for comfort warmth on cold windy days.
Full Brim Hat and Buff if fair skinned, or a ball cap at the least.
Polarized Glasses to see into the water better and a Camera to capture memories.
Sun screen & quick dry pants with a long sleeve shirt on your trip to protect from burns.
Avoid shorts or short sleeve shirts; too many customers have suffered injury on trips without proper protection.
If you intend to wet wade with quick dry pants, we still suggest wearing felt sole wading boots so having neoprene socks to fill your boots is a good idea without waders.
