After picking up my first fly rod six years back I haven't been able to put it down. Fly tying has also been a daily routine for the past three years. Tying brought my understanding of aquatic still-water life, to a hole new level. Have to admit I enjoy the fly tying almost as much as the fly fishing. I enjoy most all aspects of fly fishing such as, spey, dry, nymph and streamer fishing, but without a doubt I'm a chironomid fiend.
It's something about hunting the fish, anchoring up, getting your chironomid in the zone and awaiting for the indicator to be sucked under. Although the majority of my Mcdonalds pay check goes to the ol swivel, tippet, and indicator replacement fund, I'm lovin it. Weekly visits to local fly shops and some borrowed cash is all possible because of my Mom. My Dad introduced me and my two brothers to this lifestyle, and it's been full-on ever since. Being a member of the Kalamalka Fly Fishers club and BCFFF has introduced me into the conservation side of the fishing community.
The conservation aspect is in my mind, the heart and soul of our world class fishery. Fly fishing will continue to be an ongoing passion of mine and at the age of seventeen, who knows where it will go. Stay tuned for anything still-water, and the odd river trip.
