Growing up in the Cariboo allowed me to be in the outdoors every day. I started fishing in the creek on my grandfather`s farm for small rainbow trout and I was hooked from that first tug. Our family used to hike in to the Blackwater River to camp and fish I always enjoyed catching those hard fighting rainbow trout. Fifty years later floating the Blackwater with clients I still get excited watching as those aggressive rainbows attack dry flies on the surface.
We also do Wilderness float trips for the family that just wants to get away and relax. Going through the different phases of fishing has seen me catching really big rainbows and bull trout, catching salmon, big sturgeon, steelhead as well as tropical destinations for the grand slam. I have hiked and fished in many parts of the world. Guiding has been part of my life starting out young with my Great Uncle Alec Mooring On Fawn Lake, near One Hundred Mile House.
Teaching someone to fly fish is the best job I can imagine, watching the joy as they master casting a dry fly, and then hook a hard running trout. This is usually followed by a quick picture and the gentle release.
