Hailing from the interior of British Columbia Dana has been fishing in one form or another for most his life. He saw the light a little over 10 years ago and has been exclusively fly fishing ever since. Growing up on the banks of the largest river in the Pacific Northwest and possibly the world’s largest tailwater, the Columbia River, there was no doubt fishing was going to be a major part of his life. He often travels from the West Kootenays to the East Kootenays in order to fish with friends on some of the best dry fly fisheries in Canada. Dana is an active member in a local fishing club which promotes fish conservation, getting new people on the water and just having a good time. When Dana isn’t on the river chasing down trout be can be found at the tying bench honing his tying skills, working on new patterns or recording tying tutorials.
