Love this fly shop. They always have what we need. The guides are great, and you can buy or rent your gear. They even have some shuttle services available for moving your car down the river for you. We always use these guys.

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
I am considering coming to Fernie to fish the region's waters in August. However, I am a little unsure about the classified waters opportunities. All of the waters I a hoping to fish are classified waters and require a daily rod fee and I am Ok with that. however, I am curious how available these opportuniies are. As I understand, they can sell out and then you can't fish those areas on those days. I don't want to travel 2,000 miles to find out I can't fish the waters I wanted to. And I am a strictly a DIY angler. Can you tell me how likely these rods will be available to US anglers for last week of July through first week or two of August? I know it is variable from year to year, but I am really just trying to understand the potential availability AND I will also need to know how early we should buy days. Thanks!
