Beckie Clarke is the owner of Fernie Fly Fishing and one of the few Licensed Guide Outfitters in the Elk Valley holding classified rod days on numerous local rivers. She has been a fixture in the local fly fishing community for over a decade and considers herself someone who is dedicated to sharing her passions for life, adventure and fishing with others. Beckie teaches fly fishing and fly tying classes at the College of the Rockies and donates her time to various community events including the Kootenay Trout Hatchery annual Woman’s Fly Fishing Retreat.
She enjoys hiking into backcountry streams in search of the next hatch or big fish; just as much as she loves rowing her hyde drift boat. In the winter months you will find her managing her other business, on the mountain skiing or in some warmer weather destination chasing sun and saltwater fish.
You may have seen Beckie in fly fishing magazines, or videos such as Trout TV , WFN, and Clearly BC – Part 1 & 2 filmed by Todd Moen from Catch Magazine.
Beckie is also a member of the Islander Pro Advisory Staff , International Woman’s Fly Fishers and is sponsored by Columbia Sportswear. She is a very busy guide and books up fast, so if you would like to enjoy a day on the water with her; make sure to let us know early.
