Meeting your guide

8:30 am at the Kootenay Fly Shop (821 7th Ave Fernie,B.C) on Hwy 3 in Fernie. If fishing on any other river in British Columbia, clients will meet their guide at the Kootenay Fly Shop at the time indicated.

    Angling Licenses and Fees: B.C. has very strict fishing regulations. Each river that we will fish needs a specific license permit; therefore, you need two different licenses: a Basic license and a Classified License. We strongly recommend purchasing JUST your basic license, allowing us to help you purchase the correct classified license on your arrival; this gives us more flexibility on where fishing is better and more efficient with your time in Fernie.

    A 1-day basic license is $22.- 1 day on a classified water license is $22.The total for 1 day is $44.- + tax.

    If you come for more than 1 day in a row, there are special prices in licensing.


    To register for your fishing license online before your trip, go to https://j100.gov.bc.ca/pub/ras/signin.aspx



      In order to secure space, a 50% advance payment is required at the time of booking. The balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. Advance payments are non refundable.

      The weather is often variable; trips are not cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. If you decide to cancel your trip due to weather conditions or health issues, no refund will be made.

      We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance.

      We also suggest early reservations due to limited availability. Payments can be done by personal check, wire transfer or credit card. Credit card payments are subject to 2.9% surcharge.
