YOUR Day On the Banks Fly Fishing Bow River…
Bow River Fly Fishing is not hard, and is an amazing, life long learning journey. We will have you casting well enough to catch fish from the boat, typically within the first half hour on the water.
We specialize in working with first time fly fishers and love to introduce everyone to this pass time turned obsession. But not to worry, YOU probably won’t become addicted like us!
About the Bow River Fly Fishing Company
At the Bow River Fly Fishing Company we don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we certainly make sure YOUR day trip on the water is First Class, Fun, Educational and creates fond memories where the fish get bigger every time you tell your story.
As your experienced guides, we are life long students of Fly Fishing and love to see YOU pick up on the excitement we feel every time we cast a line. Kevin, Luke and I enjoy nothing more than seeing you hook up a Bow River Trout, learning and applying new skills and even teaching us a thing or two along the way.
For each trip, we provide all the necessary gear and instruction to make YOUR adventure a day trip you will remember for a lifetime!
Keep in mind this is YOUR day, and we are happy to work together with you to customize your fly fishing excursions!
