Surrey, BC


Chilliwack, BC

Though she wasn’t born into a fishing family, April somehow entered this world genetically programmed to fish. She’s been on the water ever since. Today, when she’s not guiding the fabled rivers of British Columbia, teaching fly tying and casting, writing about fishing and appearing in fishing films, April fights to protect wild fish. On her days off, she goes fishing.
