It is no secret that spring stillwater fishing in the interior of BC is a great time. During this event led by Brian Chan and Phil Rowley, two days were spent at Corbett Lake Lodge followed by another two at Stoney Lake Lodge. The food, the people, the experience, it was an event I am very grateful to have been able to work alongside some of my favourite people in the fly fishing industry.
Here are a few photos that brought back great memories from last week’s adventures:
