I think I started river guiding in ’84 and the addiction was instant. Over the years I have guided most of the northern rivers we run and I seem to be drawn to the Firth and Alsek continuously. Must be the magnetic north. When I am not running rivers, I operate my steelhead fishing lodge on the Bulkley River near Smithers, BC. Winters sometimes find me chasing sharks on a research ship or bone fishing on the flats. Spring is teaching rescue courses. My favourite memories of river trips are always the hikes.
Hi everyone! I just finished up the steelhead season with some well needed rest. I will be heading down the east coast for a couple of sharking expiditions in the spring with ocearch, check out the shark tracker on ocerch.org! I am also looking forward to a private Grand Canyon trip this spring!
I hope to see some of you all on the Firth this summer, so come and join us!
Last winter I was working my regular gig on the shark research / TV production ship and tore my Achilles tendon. Major bummer. So I had to sit out my traditional season of guiding on the Firth and Alsek. That hurt more than my heel! But I was hopping along OK in time for the steelhead fishing season at my lodge. The fall has been beautiful. Looking forward to skiing and hopefully some diving.
Following great trips on the Firth and Alsek, I went back to Smithers, BC to open my fishing lodge on the Bulkley River for the steelhead run. It was a great season and now I am deciding what adventures are awaiting for the winter!
