Fly Fishing on the Bow River

A typical float will have you on the water from 6 to 12 hours, depending on what you are up for.

Meeting Place will be pre-arranged prior to the float. I will get you to and from the river.

A scenic tour through a lower section of the Bow River between Calgary and Carseland.

On and Off times geared towards your schedule and the season.

We will fish from the boat and the shore in some choice spots. You will have plenty of time to fish, explore and relax.  Have a few laughs, catch a few fish and enjoy the day.

It is common to see Deer, Bald Eagles, Beaver, Pelicans (and the odd fish) on your trip. Come prepared to document the adventure.
