Brian is fully experienced in Fly Fishing for Salmon, Trout & Steelhead and has been tying flies since the early 90’s. He is also fully experienced in Sturgeon fishing and all methods of Salmon fishing including bar fishing and lure fishing. Brian has been fishing the Fraser river valley since the mid 1980’s. He is also well known for his guiding expertise on the Squamish river where we fly fish for Trout & Steelhead.
Jason Gemperle fishing guide
Amazing fishing abilities for Salmon, Sturgeon, Steelhead and especially Fly Fishing! Jason has been with us since 2014.
Jason has won top awards for World Fly Fishing Championships in the Junior class so he knows a thing or two about hucking feathers. He is fully capable in Spey or single hand. If you want Spey lessons he’s the man.
Jason very quickly became proficient in Sturgeon fishing and has no problem getting you into giant White Sturgeon. He’s also very good at bar fishing for Fraser river Chinooks! We hope he sticks around for a while!
Ash the Sturgeon guide
Ash has been with us since 2015 and fishing BC since he could hold a rod(over 30 yrs). He is nuts about Sturgeon fishing, well it’s an obsession really. He’s also got tons of experience in bar fishing for Spring salmon and Coho fishing in the Fraser river Valley.
