I would highly recommend Graham's service to anyone who wants an educational day on the water, or the chance at getting into a lot of fish in a very remote piece of river. Justin E.

Donnie`s first one today

Hey Graham,

Enjoyed the trip and all the pointers you threw my way. Some real gems in there that likely saved me a lot of frustration. Too bad the day flies by so fast, but I can honestly say you met the objectives I had in mind so it's money well spent in my opinion.

Donnie

Big Buck Steelhead"My initiation took place on a trip with Graham Bristow, a guide who runs Anglers Pro Shop in Orangeville. He's regarded as one of the premier river anglers and center-pin instructors in Ontario. We landed 5 Steelhead and only lost one on our 8-hour drift." Bob McGary. Great Lakes Salmon/Trout Editor.

Chris and Hans"Thank you for a fabulous fishing trip. The fish were superb, beautiful chrome jumpers. We found you to be very knowledgeable guide and a wonderful patient teacher. By the end of the day we had landed more then 20 steelhead and probably lost about the same number. It was the best day of fishing that both Chris and I have ever had and the best fathers day present I've had in a long time! Thanks again for everything!! Chris and Hans

Bill M with a resident rainbow.Hey Graham,   Had an absolute blast yesterday, even if the brownies weren't cooperating (Although I know for sure I had two swipes!)    Taking a break and fishing dries for those little bows was a lot of fun.  Got some pretty good pics as well.   I'm always up for a midweek fish, just drop me an email or give me a ring.   Thanks again! Bill M.

Bill with a nice Brown Trout I had a great time and learned so much about fly fishing. I still can’t believe the size of the browns where we fished. Your products and services are the best in Ontario. I’ll be back to the store and on the water again soon”. Bill H.

brown troutWe caught 18 Browns in one day with 3 over 16” and a huge one over 22”, the Grand River rocks, This has to be the best river in Ontario for fly fishing for Browns and I think Graham knows fish, rock and twig in every pool. We missed so many more. Thanks for the best day on the water Graham

releasing a troutDear Graham, Thanks for showing my husband and I a great time. Steve said “If you taught me any better I'd be better then him!” Thanks for getting us both into some nice brown trout and brook trout and for taking us to such a beautiful trout river. I’m putting my order in for at least 24 of your custom tied flies to try down here.

Hey Graham,

Brown troutThat was some amazing steelhead action. I can’t believe that many fish where still there that late in May. The browns were a bonus to. Thanks for the tips and lesson on nymphing. Armando and I will be back for the fall runs since you say they’re even better.

Trout on the CreditHi Graham,         Thanks for e-mailing the pictures. My son and I had a great time and learned a lot. We’ll be buying ourselves fly rods and waders to try on one of the local streams by us. We’d like to see more of the grand river and the humber so we’re planning a trip for 4 days next season and will be booking you again soon. See you then.

I've been fishing with Graham for years and all I can say is he can catch fish like no one else can. I think he's set foot on every inch of ever river in the Orangeville area and has caught more browns and specs then anyone I know. Rich M.

Best guide service out there. Graham is knowledgeable and a great teacher. A true joy to be out with and well worth the time for the most season pro to the first timers. A prefect drift is the perfect fit for some fishing fun. Richard Mc. Brampton

Hello Graham,

My fishing trip out with you was the highlight of my vacation. I enjoyed the walk and wade and the drift boat guides. You have a beautiful country and your rivers are so clean and healthy. I had a fabulous time and hope to be back soon. Thank you all for the great times.

I celebrated my 67th birthday with a fly fishing trip to Ontario. I found Anglers Pro Shop through a friend who lives close by and recommended them. This was a the first time I’d been in a drift boat and it was nice not walking for miles to catch trout for a change. Graham promised I'd catch some nice trout and he did just that. I actually caught way more then I ever imagined. His patients and his Knowledge of the rivers were amazing. He’s professional and I highly recommend him and his store to anyone. Steven W, Idaho.
