Get it wet (2.5 hours) $300.00 CAD

An ideal trip if you can only get away for a relatively short time. Chief Hector offers very consistent and predictable dry fly hatches virtually all day long, we will assure you take advantage of these.
The Eagle (6 hours) $500.00 CAD
Whether beginner or advanced Fly-fisher this time spent on the waters of Chief Hector surrounded by the best views of the Rockies will definitely have a rejuvenating effect on you, and like the Eagle your movements while purposeful will become effortless. I assure you your casting and fishing ability will improve to a point of effortless success.
Half Day Float: (5 hours) $450.00 CAD
We prefer to sell this trip as a Sundowner, except on overcast days. The UBR is a Brown Trout river and Browns don't like bright sunny weather, or at least they dont come out and play willingly in bright sunlight. We designed this trip to be a genuine Sundowner - float through fast water with streamers in hand and then fish the slicks, flats and shaded waters hard matching the hatches.
Full Day Float:(8 hours) $575.00 CAD
Best timing should include a Sundown finish if at all possible.
A great technical learning and fishing day. Fishing the big waters of the Upper Bow you will learn to hunt the back channels and log jams and you will learn to fish water that you might otherwise not while discovering that much of what you think might be choice, is through the eyes of a Brown Trout perhaps a lot less than inviting.
