Chris Dawson–Winlaw B.C.
Chris has been fly fishing in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest for 30 years. Over that time he’s authored two widely acclaimed books: Due North of Montana; and Woolly Worms & Wombats, an account of his 10-month trip backpacking and casting flies in the Australian Snowy Mountains, Tasmania and New Zealand. The South Island has a special hold on Chris – he returns there each season to sight-fish and stalk the wily backcountry brown trout. “It’s like bowhunting for fish,” Chris says, chuckling. “And just about as productive.” Back home in the Kootenays, Chris is drawn to guiding by his love of fly fishing and the tremendous people he meets along the way. His articles have appeared in many of the industry’s leading magazines, including Fly Fisherman, Fly Rod & Reel and Gray’s Sporting Journal.
