Welcome to A Perfect Drift
Premier Trout and Steelhead Guide Service
Who We Are: We are
Southern Ontario's top full time independent river guide service.
We eat, sleep and breath fishing
12 months of the year and we have dedicated our lives to sharing the
passion and our knowledge with others.
Where We Are: We are
based in Orangeville Ontario which is known as the "Hills of the
Headwaters" and is centrally located minutes from 4 of
Southern Ontario's best trout and steelhead rivers. The Grand River, The
Credit River, The Humber River and the Nottawasaga Rivers are all located
within a 15 minutes drive. We're also close to
other great rivers like the
Saugeen river, the Beaver river, the Pine river, the Bighead river and many more.
Fishing: With plenty of brown trout and brook trout in the
headwaters and lots of Steelhead and Pacific Salmon in the middle and lower
sections of many rivers this is what many anglers consider to be the best
river fishing in Ontario. River smallmouth bass, musky and pike are also
available in good numbers during the summer months.
Your head guide and owner Graham Bristow has over 30 years of fly fishing and float fishing/centerpin fishing
experience on the local rivers and over 13 years of guiding and instructional
experience. Graham has fished with and trained with many great anglers and
shares that knowledge and that experience with his customers.
What We Offer: We
offer our customers professional, friendly and educational guided river trips by
drift boat or by foot. Our goal is education and catching more fish so to
help our customers become better anglers we specialize and teach the most
modern and most effective methods that are not yet used by most Ontario anglers and other
guides services. We also offer guided trips to rivers that no one else guides including
some private access water. We can meet your individual needs by customizing
every trip based on your personal expectations and skills and we are patient
and understanding so even the absolute beginner will benefit from time on
the water with us. We also offer lessons on fly fishing, Spey fishing and centerpin
Fly fishing, centerpin fishing,
or spin fishing: what ever fishing style you prefer or species you
want to target we can provide
you with a fun filled and educational guided river trip. We can also provide
nearly everything you need for your trip out at no extra charge.

" After 10 years of fly
fishing I didn't realize how much more there was to know. Graham is a
skilled guide and instructor and after sharing his knowledge with me I'm
catching more and bigger trout then ever before... Rich M.
Graham got me out of my rut and stopped me from
doing the same thing everyone else does and I know catch trout and
steelhead more consistently and have a few more tricks up my sleeve when
I hit the water. John D.
If you want to up your game and catch more trout then Graham's you man..
Unbelievable how many different and productive ways to nymph and dry fly
fish.. Graham gave me the tool and knowledge to help me improve a lot.
Graham taught me more in one day then I learned in 20 years myself.
Graham's flies and skills are vastly different then what I've used and
seen before. Some of his patterns and methods have helped me
consistently and almost daily hook brown trout over 20" which was
something I didn't think was possible. I hooked more brown trout over
20" in one season after training with Graham then I have in 9 years. Bob
"Most anglers that know me know I love to
teach and guide and with over 30 years of fly fishing experience and
having had the opportunity to train and fish with hundreds of skilled
anglers, competition anglers and even fly fishing coaches I know I can
help both advanced and beginner anglers catch more trout and steelhead.
So if you've ever wanted to learn how to catch more fish you should
consider joining our classes or book a guided day on the water and see
what the others already know." Graham Bristow
