The very best in B.C.

To give you the best catch we scout a variety of rivers to choose prime fishing grounds before each expedition. We invest this time in exploratory research to determine which river is in the best shape. We expend the energy to make your fishing expedition a worthwhile holiday from the first hello to “we will see you again". We take pride in this kind of care for every expedition. 

The Skeena River Valley (Sacred Circle) region, Terrace, located in Northern British Columbia is a fishing paradise. An abundant diversity of species is available all year round. For instance, Steelhead, Salmon, Trout. Take a less than 2-hour direct Air Canada or Westjet flight from Vancouver, B.C., North to Fly and Spey Fishing Paradise. We will take you into the remote reaches of rivers you would never expect. 

Todd Scharf

The best way to access these remote rivers is with a highly skilled jet sled pilot. 

Vancouver, BC native, registered, professional fly-fishing guide, adept Jet Sled pilot and master fly craftsman Todd Scharf is the leader in proper guide service. He can show you up-to-date fly and Spey instruction and technique from beginners to advanced. 


Born and raised in Vancouver, BC after years of fishing the Greater Vancouver region, Todd decided Terrace; home of the legendary Skeena River system is the best location to access many river systems and the biggest wild Steelhead, Salmon and Trout. Due to chaotic forces of nature, rivers sometimes blow out.  You can count on Todd’s knowledge about river and weather conditions.  He knows through years of experience which river is in the best shape for your expedition.  By Todd’s talent as a fisherman, his guide acumen, expertise as a professional jet sled pilot, master fly craftsmanship and as a connoisseur of the finest fishing equipment we are able to give you the very best chance at a great catch.  His complete guide service, positive attitude and skillful mobility will leave a lasting impression about the joy and beauty of fishing.
