A country of magnificent beauty and vast unpopulated expanses challenged only by its species diversity from coast to coast.

Wild fish in wild country is perhaps the best way to describe flyfishing in BC, Alberta, & the Northern Territories of Canada. The coastal BC season starts with the wildest fish of them all, the spring steelhead. Soon to follow is the King or Chinook salmon, which can certainly break 90lbs & are known to break 100lbs. Soon after the other pacific salmon come, the autumn steelhead begin to run the famous rivers Skeena, Nass, Bulkley, Kispiox, Sustut, Babine, Dean, & Damdochax. These waters fill with fish, causing many to make their way to try their luck. Among the Canadian Rockies tumbles freestone rivers teaming with Browns, Rainbows, Cuts, & Bull Trout into beautiful mountain towns like Fernie & Jasper. Blue-ribbon trout streams flow directly through the “cowboy metropolitan” city of Calgary. Thousands of lakes and rivers among northern territories and Manitoba offer pike, lake trout, grayling, smallmouth, walleye, & a whole host of species eager for the flyfisher or conventional angler. Finally, the eastern regions of Canada offer exceptional brook trout. These fish are tackle busters for hearty anglers willing to venture deep into Newfoundland to the west side of Hudson Bay.
