The following review is written on behalf of Bruce Campbell, CEO of Standish Towing and Recovery LTD: Wapiti Sports has been a great asset to our fleet - as being properly outfitted for demanding roadside conditions is of paramount importance. Having this gear in a short amount of time is essential, but in a small mountain town, it is more difficult than we would like it to be. That being said, the help received from the salespeople at this location really made an impact. From messaging the store to having my goods arrive was only a matter of days, which absolutely exceeded expectations. In the Bow Valley, it is difficult to have employees trained and informed adequately about the products and services they offer. I have received great help in the queries I have posed, and genuinely encourage those shopping for outdoor equipment to stop by the Wapiti sports location in Canmore. -Bruce Campbell Standish Towing and Recovery LTD

Just returned from a holiday in the Canadian Rockies, and being a keen fisherman, wanted to organise a guided fishing trip on the Bow River. I have to say how impressed I was with everything about Wapiti Sports and Outfitters. From the efficient contact online, to the warm welcome from Terry in the shop, to the expertise that Dale showed in guiding me, my experience was all I hoped it would be. Dale is an expert guide and has spent his life fishing the Bow, and it really showed as he guided me down the river, patiently seeking out the best spots and putting me over lots of fish in quite challenging low water conditions. The fact that only about half the fish I hooked made it to the net was largely my fault, but I couldn't fault his expertise, his knowledge and his hard work on the oars! In the end I landed five fish, which I was well pleased with. All in all, a great days' fishing and a wonderful experience. Highly recommended service from a great team.

We had a great day fishing on the gorgeous Bow River! We had the pleasure of hanging out with Nick all day who kept us smiling and laughing the entire time. I can still hear his commentary and little one-liners in my head :) Nick was very fun to be around, extremely knowledgeable about the area and, of course, a great fisherman. We learned a lot! It had just rained so the water was a bit murky so we couldn't do fly fishing, but we still caught some beautiful brown trout with the spinners. We ended up extending our tour a few hours because we didn't want to leave. If we're ever back in Banff we will have to reunite with our buddy and catch some big guys on the fly. WHAM!

We had not one but TWO fantastic days with Nick and Aaron. We had so much the first day we decided to book a second trip as the grand finale of our trip to Canmore and the Canadian Rockies. These guys think of everything. From the beginning of the day when you are getting your fishing license in their store to the well groomed hike out to the lake, they are proficient and friendly. They have lots of knowledge about the area and love sharing it! We were traveling as a family with our children (9 and 12) and my mom (79) and they were so helpful and accommodating. We caught several “lakers” and Nick and Aaron fried them up while we were there. “Best day ever our kids said!”
