Our Team - The Staff of Country Pleasures


Kevin Peterson Kevin Peterson

Kev has been fishing Southern Alberta since he was a teenager and has extensive experience in both fresh and salt water. His knowledge and demeanor are second to none that you’ll find in a fly shop. In addition to shop and guiding duties, Kevin instructs all of our Introductory Fly Fishing Schools.

Kelly Robertson

Kelly spends his time off from his real job on the Calgary Fire Department to work here in the shop. Kelly has been fly fishing for a very long time and he’s very knowledgeable. He’s worked in a couple fly shops over the years and certainly knows his stuff.

Josh Markle Josh Markle

When Josh isn’t teaching school in Lethbridge, he’s often working in the shop or, in tandem with Kevin, teaching all of our Basic Flyfishing Schools. Josh fishes a ton, all over the place. His latest affliction is Steelheading, taking him to the west coast a couple of times a year. Along with Kevin, Josh also teaches all of our Introductory Fly Fishing Schools.

Mike Gifford Mike Gifford

In addition to being in charge of all custodial/janitorial duties, Mike, along with wife Maureen, own the shop. Mike also manages the travel department here at the shop.

Ross Wadlow Ross Wadlow

Ross grew up in Northern Alberta, recently moving to the Calgary area to attend SAIT. Kind of a Bull Trout fanatic, he likes to swing flies with the two handed rods. Also a really good fly tier, you should ask him to show you some of his flies for the Bulls. Pretty amazing stuff.


Kevin Peterson Kevin Peterson

In late spring every year, Kevin shifts from shop duties to guiding duties. He has guided on the Bow for over 20 years and is known as one of the very best out there.

Quinn Styles Quinn Styles

Quinn has been guiding yearly on the Bow since he was in his late teens, adding up to almost 25 years now. Not only an avid fisherman but also a bird hunter, a day out with Quinn is always a great day.

Joe Buck Joe Buck

In the off season Joe spends his time as a teacher. He has been guiding for the shop for 15 years now and guided for a number of years before that. Joe is an original, a day spent with Joe will always contain a lot of laughs.

Adam Rich Adam Rich

Adam loves technical fishing, and guiding like sight fishing, rising fish, and such. One of the more pleasant people you’ll ever meet and a very good guide.

Blair Yerxa Blair Yerxa

Blair joined our guiding staff just a few years ago but has quickly become a really good fishing guide. Everybody enjoys their day with Blair, one of the nicer guys you’ll ever spend a day with. And his clients catch a ton of fish.
