Sarah grew up in Campbell River, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island.

(It was once known as the 'Salmon Fishing Capital of the World.')

She developed a passion for fishing when she was only three years old.

Billy, her father, was an angler who traveled the world teaching people of all walks of life how to cast a line.

Sarah began working at lodges as young as 13 years old, including Painters Lodge and April Point, and later in life, Oles Fishing Lodge in the Queen of Charlottes, to walk in his foot steps.

Sarah specializes in salmon and halibut and has spent the last seventeen years freshwater fishing for steelhead and trout. She is currently taking people out in their own boats and teaching them how to fish in individual classes.

She has also begun 2-hour sessions available in Victoria B.C where you can learn the basics all without breaking the budget, and longwinded classes.


Sarah started tying flies at the age of five, starting with the world-famous Wooley Bugger and working her way up to scrutinizing her catch's stomach for anything they've eaten - Then tying that. Working in the Oak Bay region of Victoria, B.C., I've discovered that there's plenty fishing space to toss a line and learn the basics all year.
