Paul Samycia Guide Outfitter Owner Elk River Guiding Company Fernie BC Canada

As owner of the Fly Shop and the outfitter at Elk River Guiding Company, Paul (#bestbossever)  takes his fishing seriously. Having spent many years hunting and fishing in the Canadian Rockies, along with a Bachelor of Science in Zoology, his outdoor knowledge and skills are difficult to match.  He is always up to the challenge of finding "new" waters to fish, or going on adventureous walk and wades.  He is a wealth of knowledge and is willing to share his expertise on a guided fly fishing trip or just during shop chat.

His hosted fly fishing trips to Crooked Island, Bahamas and Tarponville, Costa Rica have become annual events and is an amazing salt water experience.

The Fly Shop and guiding is full time for Paul and he greatly appreciates the patronage and support from clients old and new, as well as from the guides who have stood behind him for over 16 years!
