About the Author
I am the author and creator of all the writing and media content on the website (unless otherwise stated). Please do not hesitate to contact me for any freelance writing inquiries, publishing opportunities, or for any other questions about my work
I am a 27 yr old fly-fishing fanatic, with over a decade of fly-fishing experience in the wilderness of Alberta and BC. I have been writing about fly-fishing for 7 years and have taught many friends, family, and clients to fly-fish; there is nothing I love more than sharing my passion for this sport with others. My focus as a guide is to provide memorable fly-fishing experiences and inspire respect and appreciation for all of nature. I am a Wildlife and Fisheries student at the University of Northern British Columbia and live seasonally between Lethbridge, AB and Prince George, BC.
I am a regular contributor to Hooked Magazine, a niche western Canadian publication dedicated to fishing and hunting. For more, visit https://www.hookedmagazine.ca.
