I got the opportunity to be guided by Clint G. in early April 2011. I recommend to every fly-fisherman passing by Squamish (BC) to stop and spend few days with Clint. Rivers are great aroud there, and Clint is a very experienced and motivated fly fishing guide. That was Steelhead time in Squamish. Fishing was not easy (not an exception there I believe), but Steelheads are worth trying. Result: no fish landed. Nevertheless, Clint managed at the end of the day to find active chars. I believe that is a representative day of excellent guiding.

Thank you for taking the time to tell others of your trip with me. Going after the Steelhead is always a challenge but very regarding if you and a fish should cross paths. In the end, as you have mentioned, there are almost always some bull trout (char) or rainbows available if the Steelhead won't cooperate. I hope we get another day on the water in the future. -Tight lines -Clint Goyette

Clint gave the two of us first-timers a blue-ribbon day. He got us casting and on the water in 20 minutes, and is a great instructor. He really emphasizes good techniques to land and release the fish safely to limit the impact on their health. I've since picked up fly fishing as a hobby and met other guides, but Clint is still the best. I would definitely go back to VFG when back in the area, any time of year.

Thank you for your kind words, although I am sorry that I have introduced you to such an addictive sport! I look forward to another day on the water with you both in the future! Tight lines, Clint Goyette

I'll echo the previous reviews...this was a great experience. I couldn't have asked for a better guide than Clint. He is clearly knowledgeable, but also has tremendous patience, evidenced by his working with this first-timer. I hope to be back soon! Thanks for an awesome experience.

Clint is very accommodating, pleasant to be around, helpful, instructional, funny and an all around nice guy. He put my wife on her biggest fish to date a 22 inch rainbow, and guided her to make sure she landed it. His wife makes tasty sandwiches too.

I'll keep this short and sweet - the only way to experience fly fishing. Clint provides even the most beginner with the positive reinforcement and patience needed to make the time on the river the most enjoyable. Best money and time i've spent, on anything, in a long time.
