Welcome to Kootenay Fly Shop & Guiding Company. We’ve been guiding anglers on amazing fly fishing trips across British Columbia, Alberta and other tropical locations around the world for over 20 years! Amazing fly fishing stories can be taken home with you after fishing the incredible waters of the Elk River, Wigwam River, Michel Creek, Bull River, Kootenay River, Crowsnest River, Oldman River and more as well as the many lakes in the East Kootenays.
Exciting news to end the 2018 season! Kootenay Fly Shop & Guiding Company has purchased Fernie Fly Fishing.
