About Me

I have been fishing for as long as I can remember and have been guiding professionally since 2016, spending every moment I can on the water. I fish for everything that swims from the jungle to saltwater and my favourite Canadian waters where I spend the bulk of my time.

I tailored my education to keep me outside and on the water, earning a diploma, degree and masters researching fish diet. Understanding the science behind fish movement has been a key part of consistently productive days on the water. 

Hot Take Angling works closely with professional guide and fly fishing expert Neil Leduc of Affinity Angling.
