Fly Fisherman

Elliot Brass

If I’m not fishing, then I am probably on the bench, tying up a few bugs for my next day on the river. To me, tying flies is as rewarding as hooking a Chrome Fish!

How Long Have You Been Fly Fishing?

I started fly fishing when I was 8 years old. Luckily, an old Norwegian, who was my adopted Grand Pa, gave me a fly rod and fly setup! I grew up on the mighty Bow River. Another nice old fella, Gerry Stevenson (still kicking and fishing into his nineties), took me and my brother out frequently, teaching us a thing or two about fly fishing. I caught my first Bow-River-Rainbow with Gerry and have never looked back.

Favourite Fishing Memory?

First Steelhead (obviously)

Why Do You Love Living Where You Live?

I love where I live because I am so close to the things that make me happy. There are bears in my yard almost every day. In the fall, Eagles wake me up every morning. Also, I can walk from my front door to the river, where I catch fish almost all year long. We have an excellent bunch of local fishermen, who are great fishing companions. Sometimes, we just swap stories when the river is blown.

Favourite Movie?

Star Wars (Yup. I am a nerd)

Favourite Camping Food?


What’s On Your Bucket List?

I would like to catch a wild salmon in Scotland.

Principles to Live By?

Never be cheap with food or drink. Keep secret spots secret. Always start a fishing story with, “this is no bullshit.”
