2019 Available Dates & Locations:
May 24 – 30: Central Alberta Brown Trout Streams
Aug 26 – Sept 15: Southern Alberta rivers & streams
We offer a limited number of guide days each season. Our focus is sight-fishing & hatch chasing with dries & droppers, as well as streamer fishing. Our trips are instructional first, the how, so that regardless the result of our day together you learn something of value, how we target the trout we catch. We want you to come away with another set of tools from our time together. We’ll study things like the approach, presentation & mechanics, or to work as a team on sighted or rising trout, or prospecting streamers & dries to likely water.
We do walk & wade as well as jon-jet or raft float trips.
ABOUT YOUR DAY – As our guest, we hit the water together. We’re looking for special, unique moments of value: rising trout; spotting trout along structure; unique hatches or insect events; interesting things that happen on the water in order to help you learn how we would fish that situation (our approach, gear used/why, little nuances of what makes us successful, etc) and also so that we can capture it on video. If you’re interested in video & photography, this is a perfect day to see what we do and how we go about some of our video shots. Our walk & wade trips maximize focus of conversation. You must be able to walk 4 to 8km in a day. It’s our ADVANCED TACTICS video playlist come to life – helping you. We host one or two anglers per day.
SIGHT-FISHING: We’ve built a global reputation for the video moments we capture, especially on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK. Sight-fishing is how we do it. We’ve always loved spying on browns & rainbows. We don’t sight-fish to only target big trout, we sight-fish to have a different style of engagement that reveals the entire trout stream. Finding big fish is simply part of the game because we can’t avoid seeing them in our approach and style of fishing. These days begin about 10 am and last through early evening.
THE VALUE – Our “About Us” page shares our qualifications & involvement in fly fishing. That’s the value you get with us. Your time with us is about the value of being with us, to take your fishing to the next level and have new experiences. We’ll provide feedback about what we see of your fly fishing and suggest little tweaks that will bring you greater success in a variety of scenarios. Fly fishing success comes by limiting the compounding of small errors which can come at any stage of the engagement: approach; leader, tippet & fly selection; casting; wading; timing; angles; patience; casting placements; etc. We share the water with you per below, while helping you improve and adjust the above.
WHERE & WHEN:
SOUTHWEST ALBERTA TAILWATERS, STREAMS & RIVERS: We live in Pincher Creek, Alberta and our home waters are the Oldman, Waterton, and St Mary Rivers and their tributaries north & south of hwy #3. These waters have good numbers and sizes of rainbows, browns, cutts, and a few bull trout. Great sight-fishing and hatch-chasing is available in some wonderfully intimate moments that rarely disappoint. We may stagger our day to begin at dawn and fish until mid-afternoon or begin at mid-afternoon through dusk.
CENTRAL ALBERTA BROWN TROUT: PRAIRIE CR, RAVEN RIVER SYSTEM, FALLENTIMBER CR We’ve spent thousands of hours on these waters the past 25 years, having lived in Red Deer through 2018. We sight-fish, head hunt, prospect hopper-droppers, and streamer fish. If you’ve seen a lot of our INSTAGRAM videos & photos, this is where you’ll be. There are only a few hours of magic each day and a limited number of browns, this is truly focused on possibly getting in to a few nice browns in a manner consistent with our Brown Trout Project production.
