On August 27th my wife and I had an amazing day with Clint on the river. Clint took us off the beaten track to an amazing area with breath taking views. His knowledge of fly fishing was so impresive and with ease he was able to explain what we should do and where we should fish, which showed results immediatley. He showed us a type of fly fishing that was easy and very effective for beginners. I really appreciated the time and attention he gave us during the trip.That made a huge diference in our experiece. If you are in the area and want catch the fishing bug, give Clint a call.

Thanks Clint, We have the fishing bug.

Hope to see you next year.

Very happy with experience. Travelled from Australia to experience BC fly fishing.
Despite a heat wave and challenging conditions, Clint adapted to provide my friend and I with an excellent day on the rivers, catching many fish (even my friend, despite this being his first time holding a fly rod!), including large bull and rainbow trout.
Highly recommended, thanks

Clint is really a pro.
I am a beginner on fly fishing and it was privilege to spent a day with such a knowledgeable fisherman.
I highly recommend him and I am looking forward to fishing with Clint again.

Booked an early morning half day trip in early April and then planned our vacation around that date....two days before we arrived received an email asking to move the next day- which did;t work into our schedule...then we were asked to move it early evening and that didn't work - so they canceled claiming it was the weather

Since the fishing gear was included in the trip- I brought none and my wife only brought her rod and reel...nonetheless- based on some information and ideas form the locals- we went out early AM and fished a couple of places and caught and released a few fish

Don't think they were being honest about the reason for cancellation and took a lot of fun out of that part of the vacation

Dear Jamesfoley,

Thank you for the review of a trip that never happened. The booking you are referring to was made in on March 29th for a trip on July 12th. There is no way that I would know that we would be in a serious heat wave that would put the fish off mid day and blow out the rivers. That is the just of dealing with Mother Nature. My attempt to move your trip to "fishable hours" was done honestly and with my best intentions to get you on fish. I could have easily taken you for a long walk in waders in the sunshine at 90F (30C) in high water but quite honestly I do not think that would have been any fun for either of us. All of our trips are moved to hours where the best fishing is available. Unfortunately your schedule did not allow for that and therefore I gave ALL of your money back. As a reminder here is a excerpt of the last email I sent to you on July 9th, 2018: "I understand that back in March I thought an early morning trip would be possible. Unfortunately the weather isn’t cooperating for that time of day. I can cancel the trip without penalty and will send you the funds tonight." I sent the funds back soon after. Again thank you for your review as I appreciate the ability to let others know how I deal with adverse weather conditions. Thank you -Clint Goyette

Clint is your man. Put me straight onto lots of big fish. Brand new, state of the art sage tackle and superbly balanced. I was particularly impressed that when he demonstrated a particular technique he promptly caught a decent trout. He knows his stuff.

Thanks for taking the time to review the trip. I'm glad you enjoyed the premium SAGE tackle. I am equally happy that the trout cooperated on my demo! Tight lines, Clint Goyette
