Kasba Nickname:

One of the hardest fishermen to ever cruise the waters of Kasba. Pike can't sleep while they know he is out there..

What he loves about Kasba:

"By far, meeting up with my great Kasba friends, both staff and guests. I love to experience Kasba through new guests' eyes…it never gets old!
Hometown: Winnipeg, MB.

General Background: I recently followed up a business degree in marketing with a B. Ed in early years education. I spent the previous decade in Taiwan teaching English to both children and adults.

Guiding Experience: I have guided exclusively for Kasba for over 25 years. In addition to conventional fishing I enjoy fly fishing a lot. I have caught many fresh and saltwater species on the fly, including bonefish and both Atlantic and Pacific Tarpon. I am always learning, still ofton from my guests.

Favorite Area on Kasba: Where the fish are biting! I love the Dome, Kazan, and Snowbird River. There are countless beautiful fishing spots and I love to explore!

Favorite Shore Lunch: One? Sorry, that is impossible. It is hard to beat a good fresh fish fry - my favorites are spicy beer batter with fresh cut fries and tartar sauce or Low Rider's very delicious Pretzel Pike.

Favorite Lure: Pike: Half-wave spoon, large Johnson Silver Minnow with a white twister tail, Sluggos, and large Spinners! Game on! For Trout: Jigs, a Heddon Dying Flutter, large Rattle-Traps, and for the big ones I need a Luhr Jenson 00 8" flasher. Oh baby.
