Our Guides

Our guides know the local waters better than anyone in the valley. Our guides come from various backgrounds and experience but they all share a passion for fly fishing, conservation of our local waters, and the outdoors. With an outstanding safety record, we strive above and beyond to make your experience with us safe and fun.


Kim is the owner and founder of Fernie Wilderness Adventures. Growing up in Fernie, Kim has over 30 years of guiding experience on the local waters and was the first licensed outfitter in the area. He has a passion for both fishing his home waters and guiding on them.


Brian was born and raised fishing in Eastern Canada. After moving out west in 2002 he became a guide with Fernie Wilderness Adventures. Brian loves exploring and fishing remote new waters.


Curtis started his guiding journey in 2015. Curtis was born and raised fishing in the valley and knows the waters here very well. Along side fishing, Curtis has a passion for photography and film making and can be found taking pictures of the beautiful places we fish in the area.


Michael grew up locally, has been guiding with FWA for the past 3 seasons and has a great respect for the waters in our area. He enjoys all aspects of fishing from the entomology to the exaggerated stories told by fishermen over a pint at the end of the day.


From a young age Linden grew up fishing in Saskatchewan. Since moving to BC in 2009 fly fishing quickly became an obsession, which turned into his career in 2016. Most days you’ll find Linden exploring new waters, and fishing the many rivers and lakes in the region. Linden is a patient, easy-going knowledgeable guide, who works hard and has fun putting his clients on fish all day.
