Fun, Friendly, Patient and Skilled!


I've always said that a great angler doesn't always make a good guide. Guiding takes a special kind of person, one who has a great knowledge of the sport and is very skilled yet still has the patience and the ability to teach that knowledge to others.

 Our guides are exactly that and more.. Only guys that are skilled, patient, professional, friendly and are good teachers qualify for our pro team.

New for 2017

 New for 2017 "I've decided to go solo again by cutting my team down to just me and I will now be doing all the guiding and classes myself. I will still work closely with some of the other great guides in this area but I will no longer have them on staff. This will free up more of my time for guiding and so I can be sure that every customer booking with me is getting the very best guide service in Ontario.  I hope to see you all on the water". Thanks Graham
