Joe is the best guide on the Bow. I have fished the Bow for more than 30 years with many guides and Joe is by far the best guide I have fished with. Great lunches, knowledge and enthusiasm. You will always have a wonderful day with Joe.
After one day on the Bow River with Joe, I was hooked on fly fishing. His personality, knowledge, and overall professionalism made this trip one to remember. Anyone who takes a day with Joe on the river is bound to not only have a wonderful experience but also learn something new about fly fishing and themselves in the process.
On the stone fly hatch and we took a left on his side channel you
told me to get ready there's a pig at the top behind the eddie. I casted and
BOOM a 24 inch rainbow came up and chowed on that fly! Fight on! You rowed into
the side, we netted it! Then you said all right mate get ready just as we leave
on the big rock on the left there's another pig. I
casted out the same stone fly and up comes another big brown trout. Oh my god
I'll never forget that day. Chef Michael DeMaria avid Canadian fly fisher
