Our Clients


Selecting a fishing guide can be tricky. You may be confident that the person is knowledgeable in his or her field, but the fact is, you’re about to spend a few hours or a full day with someone you’ve never met, so you cross your fingers that things will go well. My son and I have been out with Colin and I can say that we thoroughly enjoyed our experience, and are looking forward to many more outings with him. To say that Colin knows fly fishing is a serious understatement. It is part of his genes. But for us, what comes first to mind is his whole approach to guiding: it’s all about having a great time on the water. He never reminds you how little you truly know about fly fishing. On the contrary, his easy-going and upbeat approach puts you completely at ease, and you can ask all the questions that comes to mind, and he will happily share his expertise, and a few good stories along the way. I highly recommend Colin as a fishing guide.

I first met Colin when he worked as a sales representative at a well-known outdoors products store. I had finally decided to take up fly-fishing and was looking to purchase the minimum gear to get started. Colin, an avid angler himself, proved to be passionate about fly-fishing and eager to share his knowledge. He answered all my questions with genuine interest, and provided honest and expert advice, helping me select quality products within my budget, based on the kind of fishing I intended to do. I sought his opinion several times since our first meeting. I eventually hired Colin as a fly-fishing instructor and took some private lessons with him. He showed himself to be an able and patient instructor, even as I drilled him relentlessly with questions. I soon learned that Colin regularly competes and possesses a wealth of technical knowledge and real-life experience. I would recommend Colin as a fly-fishing instructor and a reliable source of unbiased expertise to anyone.
