GET OUT THERE!
Grab your team, clients, family and friends and get out of the Office!
Corporate fly fishing trips hosted by Bow River Fly Fishing Company is a great way to appreciate your team, colleagues and customers. The change of scene and a shared, fun activity provides a unique opportunity for your employees, members and colleagues to build better communication, stronger relationships and most importantly, have fun during an adventure of a lifetime!
Bow River Fly Fishing Company is a Bow River Outfitter offering corporate day trips suitable for 12 or less people. Whatever the occasion, perhaps a team member’s birthday, corporate anniversary or celebration for a recent success, our group fishing trips are a perfect fit.
Lessons, Laughs, Lunch and the Odd Fish
Suitable for first time Fly Fishers and Experienced Anglers alike. We’ll have most people casting well enough to catch fish within 15 minutes of picking up the fly rod.
Our guided fishing experiences take the pressure of all the details and lets you and your team focus on the adventure at hand, learning new skills and taking in the breath-taking views along the Bow River valley. We may also encounter a variety of wildlife, from hawks and eagles to deer and elk.
Experience tells us when you focus on a new task, your mind relaxes. The daily challenges and bothers often take a break while you learn or improve on a repetitive skill.
For us, the best part of the day is watching someone get more confident as the day goes on. We’ve seen so many catch their first fish on a Fly Rod, or even their first fish ever. It’s also exciting to see your co workers or friends hook up as you cheer them on!
Bragging rights and Side Bets are welcome for biggest, smallest, and most trout to the net, or whatever you can dream up!
We’ll stop a few times so you can shore fish in some choice spots, catch up with your crew and lie about how big your trout was. (The guide may or may not back up your story.)
The Best Fishing Spots Along the Bow River
Lunch will be set up and provided as a group. A great time to wander around, take it in and get those news letter pics.

Learning to Fly Fish may have the following side effects:
- Increased Time Off a.k.a “Fishin’ Fridays”.
- Lies to significant others about how much your fishing gear cost.
- A surplus of solitude.
- Annoying habit of pointing out the names of bugs.
- On walks along any river with your spouse, you will point out every spot a fish should be holding. (They love this.)
