Fly Fishing Guide

Dan Tigchelaar

Part time fishing guide, full time adventurer, and curator of the trashiest flies who is always willing to go the extra mile to get to the fish.

How long have you been fly fishing?

I have been fishing since I could hold a rod in my hand and fell in love with fly fishing about 15 years ago.

What’s your favourite type of fly fishing?

I love all types of fly fishing but I am happiest stalking feeding trout on a small mountain stream far from the distractions of everyday life.

Favourite holiday destination and why?

I have been lucky to have traveled a lot of the world and I guess my favourite holiday is the next one.

Why do you love living where you live?

The proximity of nature. In five minutes I can be on one of three rivers or on some of the best single track trails in the world.

Favourite food?

Guess I am a bit of a clich√© but right now it’s got to be the Ramen Butcher.

Must have accessory when in the wild?

Headlamp. Don’t ever leave home without it.

Favourite camping food?

Last camping meal was grilled rib eye steaks with mushroom demi and gnocchi. I never skimp on the food.

My motto?

If something like this is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

What’s on your bucket list?

All of it but right now a road trip through Montana and Colorado with a drift boat and a dirt bike.
