Born and raised in the province of Ontario, Alan was fortunate to be brought up fishing his summers away on the many lakes surrounding his parents' cottage. As he grew older, his passion for fishing led him to explore many lakes and river systems throughout Southern Ontario. Over the past 15+ year Alan has gained valuable knowledge and expreience chasing top game fish, some of which include bass, pike, walleye, musky, trout, salmon, and carp.
In 2000 Alan decided to travel to the otherside of the world, to New Zealand. With his eagerness to explore, and obession for angling he quickly learned the water systems and adapted to local angling methods. This landed him a position as a fly-fishing guide on and around Lake Taupo where he stayed for two years guiding clients from around the world.
After returning back to Canada 2003 Alan's infatuation for fishing led him North. Alan's great people skills, customer service, earned him a guiding position at the prestigious Frontier Fishing Lodge on Great Slave Lake, North West Territories. Over the past two summers Alan was focussed on providing world class expriences for his clients landing Trophy Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, Northern Pike.
Alan is a competitive angler, always eager to explore new waters and experiment with new techniques.
While in New Zealand he won an international fly fishing tournament. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and teaching people how to fish, and his great personality and positive attitude are tough to come by.
When he's not guiding, you will find Alan wading the riverbanks for trout or on his boat hunting for salmon.
He also enjoys almost any sports activity especially golfing, skiing or snowboarding.
