Fly Fisherman

Katie Dowe

Fly Fisherman / hairdresser from Vancouver Island in love with the wild.

What’s your favourite type of fly fishing?

Spey! On the river.

Favourite holiday destination and why?

The Caribbean. Such a beautiful place. Everything is bright and colorful plus it’s hard to be in a bad mood when you’re in a tropical environment.

Favourite fishing memory?

The first time ever catching a salmon on a fly rod! Wow what a rush! I knew from that day forward fishing had me hooked 😉

Why do you love living where you live?

Vancouver Island is home to me. I was born and raised mostly on the island. So many places to explore and so much untouched land. Another great thing is you can go enjoy the mountain in the morning skiing or snowboarding, then come back and fish in the afternoon. You get a little bit of everything on the island. Plus the people are so friendly.
