How long have you been fly fishing?

I have been fly fishing since 2010. The first fish I caught on the fly was a brown trout down in Southern California in a beautiful secret river that is so secret I couldn’t even find it when I went back this summer.

What’s your favourite type of fly fishing?

Any fly fishing trips that involve hiking, I am in.

Favourite holiday destination and why?

Hiking to alpine lakes and camping as it takes efforts to get there and you get rewarded by magnificent views.

Your favourite outdoor adventure story of all time?

When my friend Rose and I went hiking to an Alpine lake and couldn’t find the trail, so we bush wacked along a steep cliff using my mountain biking GPS app whenever we would find cell signal. We made it to the lake, had lunch and bush wacked back. We thought only real adventurers get there, but we were told that we missed the trailhead and that hike is super accessible.

Favourite fishing memory?

Fishing in an alpine lake where you could see the fish swim and go for your fly! It was amazing.

Why do you love living where you live?

What’s great about Whistler is that it’s 2 minutes away from any outdoor activity you can imagine.

Favourite food?

Organic veggies is what makes me happy.

Favourite movie?

Love Actually

Favourite band or music style?

Emo punk rock from the 90’s

Must have accessory when in the wild?

My pocket knife that my husband gave me as an anniversary present. Someone, please tell him that I also like diamonds!

Favourite camping food?

When packing light, anything I can dehydrate like my tasty veggie risotto.

My motto?

Adventure, eat, sleep, wake up and do it again.

Principles I live by?

Be kind, listen and make a difference.

What’s on your bucket list?

Another fly fishing trip to Southern Argentina, with a quick stop in Buenos Aires.

Favorite Hook And Vice cap?
