Born and raised in Chilliwack, Derek is a local boy who began fishing at a young age with his father and younger brother. An avid fly fisher, Derek also can fish using any method and enjoys the challenge of targeting multiple species on any given day. Derek is also an accomplished Sturgeon fisherman who also volunteers for the FRSCS. When he isn’t guiding, Derek enjoys spending his time fishing with friends and family. If you can pry a fishing rod out of his hands, you might also find him out hunting or enjoying some of the other great outdoor activities the Fraser Valley has to offer with his wife and son.
