About Me

I'm Ken Baker, blue dun, or the same handle on other forums. Also known as Mr. Burns in some circles.
In the begining there was an introduction to the outside world in Port Albernie BC. Shortly after that my father was drafted into the Army and my mother moved back to Vancouver. I lived there until my marriage to Elaine, my favourite fishing partner, coming up on 44 years ago.
 In 1965 I started scaling with the BC Forest Service. Since then I/we have lived in New Westminster, Powell River, then back to New West. Kitimat, and back to New Westminster in 1974 where we resided until I retired at the end of 2007 and we moved to our present location in Penticton BC.  

I have been doing all types of fishing since a very early age. Trolling for salmon with my father and his friends in the areas around Vancouver and Howe Sound, fishing of the docks in Horseshoe Bay, bar fishing on the Fraser, riding our bikes over the old Second Narrows bridge to fish the mouth of the Seymour, trips to the interior for trout.
My first fly rod was an old Greenhart one given to me by my dad's uncle when I was in my early teens. My first recollection of flyfishing was on the Stein River near Lytton. Crossing the Fraser on the reaction ferry at Lytton was usually the highlight of the trip.
I have dabbled in all types of fishing until my daughters finally finished their High School, and other sports and shortly after that, in the early 90's reverted back to flyfishing exclusively.
I love fishing with cane rods although the weight is starting to get to me. Click and pawl reels are the only way to go.
I prefer lakes over streams with my favourite being dry line, long leader chironomid fishing, preferably without a "bobber". A very close second would be skating dries for steelhead on the Bulkley.
 I belong to the Osprey Fly Fishers and the Penticton Fly Fishers, as well as supporting several other angling associations dedicated to preserving our fishing heritage whatever your angling choice may be.
