About Me

I live in Coquitlam, BC with my wife and two sons who at this time still have no interest in fishing period.
We are working that. These things sometimes take time. :)
I fund my passion for fishing by showing up regularly at the Broco Glass in Maple Ridge, BC which I own.
Some are confused if it is indeed a glass shop or fishing shop when they walk in. :)
When ever work slows I quite often will sneak off to the "Bank" (river bank) for a little river work.
Fortunatly there is a great local river only 5-6 blocks from my shop.
I was introduced to competitive fly fishing by Todd Oishi who promised me that I would learn more in one year competing then 5 years on my own.
So at the begining of 2012 I entered my first real competition.
The NALS with around 60 people. Nothing like just easing in. :)
That truly was the turning point in my fly fishing.
I fish rivers and lakes with lakes being my preference.
I have been on a number of teams and enjoyed my experience with them all.
In 2014 I was invited by Team Mustang to attend the Canadian National Fly Fishing Championship.
In 2014 I accepted an invitation to help with the Canadian Youth Fly Fishing Team as an Assistant Coach.
Working with the Youth Team has given me a lot of satisfaction from watching these young men grow in there angling abilities.
Sure makes me wish I had started that young in the competitive scene.
