I am always actively seeking new writing opportunities! I love to share my passion for fishing by educating and inspiring others to get out on the water! Over the years I’ve taken advantage of more and more writing opportunities and hope to continue to do so. Currently my work includes; regularly scheduled columns in newspapers/magazines (in Canada and out of country), freelance articles, blogs, destination/travel/adventure stories as well as fishing photography. I fish all year long so I produce content throughout the seasons no matter what the weather is. From time to time I am also involved with on-air/on-camera hosting, seminars, presentations and more. The links below will take you to some of the recent articles I have written or publications I provide content to. If you’d like to discuss collaborations and/or writing opportunities, please contact me through the form at the bottom of this page.
