Welcome to Phil Rowley and Brian Chan's Stillwater Fly Fishing Store
We are pleased and proud to now be able to offer a variety of products specifically aimed at the challenges of fly fishing lakes.
Many of these products also work well on rivers, streams and other non-stillwater environments.
Over the years, as we travelled to various shows, seminars and workshops, we were often asked about where could someone find stillwater specific products.
Together, we have used, or had specific input into the development and use of, each product on our Stillwater Fly Fishing Store - from our books and DVD's to our flies.
These are products you will find in our kit bags, at our fly tying stations and perhaps most important, in use as we fly fish lakes around North America.
We encourage you to browse and visit our store often, as we are always looking for and adding new products.
If you have a specific product need for your stillwater forays let us know.
Perhaps we can source and add it to our store, not only for your benefit but for all stillwater fly fishers.

About Brian Chan
Brian Chan has been fortunate enough to live and work for the past 35 years in Kamloops, British Columbia.
is world famous for its rainbow trout, being strategically situated in the centre of hundreds of productive stillwater trout lakes. It is often referred to as the "
Yellowstone of the North
". It is here that Brian, as a provincial fisheries biologist, managed the recreational stillwater trout fisheries in the Thompson/Nicola Region, and developed his fishing skills.
Brian's lifelong passion for fly fishing has resulted in his spending literally thousands of angling days on these world class waters. He has shared his extensive knowledge of aquatic biology, trout ecology, entomology, and lake fly fishing tactics with others, through a number of magazine articles, books, and instructional DVDs on fly fishing. Brian has been featured on many TV fishing shows and is currently a regular guest on
Sport Fishing on the Fly
and co-host of
The New Fly Fisher
Over the years, Brian Chan has delivered many stillwater fly fishing seminars making him a much sought after speaker throughout North America. He is now taking the seminar theme one step farther by offering personalized guiding services on his home waters.
Brian enjoys introducing new fly fishers to this sport, getting them "hooked" on his lifelong passion, as much as he enjoys helping to refine the skills of even the most advanced stillwater anglers.
