Valley Fishing Guides provided our family with an unbelievable day of fly fishing on the Squamish River. We met our guide, Ryan, at a nearby local coffee shop and got some great coffees and fresh hot scones and in five minutes we were getting a quick lesson. Ryan was real patient and just a stoked guy-you can tell he loves to fish and he really knows his stuff. We had never fly fished before and within half an hour we were casting like pros. First cast for all three of us and we all hooked a nice Pink Salmon. Ryan talked us through how to guide and land the fish. We landed 20-30 fish the whole day. Crazy fun and we fished for 8 hours and could have gone longer-HIGHLY-HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

This was my first time going salmon fly fishing, and second time fly fishing overall. My brothers-in-law hired Clint for 1/2 day, and told him to bring us to a place that was hopping with fish.

Clint did not disappoint. In 4 hours, we each landed at least 3 fish, and I think I hooked at least 6. Clint was not only a knowledgeable guide who really understands the area, but was also patient instructor. He gave us the casting tips we needed, and expertly coached us on bringing the fish in.

But the three things I most like about Clint are:
(1) He respects nature and the fish,
(2) He is a clear communicator/instructor,
(3) He puts his clients needs ahead of his.

The next time we're in the area and need a fishing guide, I would definitely look Clint up again.

Me and my two boys (10 and 14 yrs) had a great experience with Ryan as our guide. We had never fly fished before but he taught us with great patience and clarity. We got at least 10 hook ups and landed many of them. I would encourage anybody who wants to add fly fishing to their bucket list to contact this outfit! My boys and I would definitely do this again.

Fished yesterday with three friends from Mobile, AL with Clint and Ryan. We all caught and landed pink salmon on the Squamish River in British Columbia. Clint and Ryan are truly the very best guides you will find. We all recommend them very highly to anyone wanting a great time on the river. They are tops in all areas whether you are an experienced fly fisherman, a novice or just beginning, you will find no better than these guys!
