Kamloops Fly Fishing | 2018 Stillwater Season Highlights

huge thank you to everyone that fished with Interior Fly Fishing Co. in 2018.  Both the spring and the fall seasons were spectacular, with guests from Canada, United States and Europe.  There is nothing more fulfilling or rewarding than watching someone experience this fishery for the first time, and truly no job in the world I would rather have than this!

british columbia fly fishingHaving a chance to fish with Savas and Nick of Trout Waters Fly & Tackle this spring.  Trout Waters was the first job I ever had in the fishing industry at 17 years old, and it had likely been 3 or 4 years since I had a chance to fish with the two people who got me started almost a decade ago.

This is just a small assortment of my favourites from this past Stillwater season.  There is no way to explain the gratitude I have for being able to live in such a wonderful place.  Within an hour’s drive of downtown Kamloops, we are so lucky to have over 100 lakes that offer opportunities for anglers of any skill level.

With May of 2019 being almost 50% booked, now is the time to book your dates for next season!

With colder weather becoming more and more regular, I can’t help but getting excited about two sold out hosted weeks in Belize and chasing giant Costa Rica Tarpon next April!

Until next year.
