Phil Rowley is a good friend, stillwater fly fishing fanatic, and business partner. Phil and I have co-authored fly tying books and fly tying DVD's and conducted many seminars on the world of fly fishing in lakes. We developed the Stillwater Solutions line of fly tying materials and fish together whenever possible.

Hosted Trips






Welcome to my website and home to Riseform Flyfishing Ventures.


On my website, you will find information on some of the services I offer including guiding, seminars, and hosted trips. There is also a complete listing and description of the books and videos that I have written, co-written or produced that you can purchase online. You will also find informative articles on stillwater fly fishing tactics and the various insect emergences, and other invertebrate food sources that we fish.


Wet your appetite with these writings and try the wonderful fisheries that exist in the southern interior region of BC!


Some of the best stillwater fly fishing opportunities anywhere exist in the Kamloops area. Highly productive, nutrient rich water and a long, warm growing season provide the perfect mix of ingredients to produce well-conditioned trout. The large number of lakes in the Kamloops area has enabled fisheries managers to offer a diversity of fishing experiences. There are lots of lakes with high populations of smaller fish that are perfect venues for learning how to fly fish and catch fish. At the other end of the spectrum are numerous quality-managed lakes that provide the opportunity to catch some large trout and even the biggest trout of your angling career.


There are lakes to fit every angler's interest and skill level!


In the near future I will be posting "how-to" videos on a variety of stillwater fly fishing subjects.


Thanks for visiting my website and please return soon.
