Colton was born in Alberta and when he was under a year old he moved to Fernie and has spent every spare minute since then exploring the waters and backcountry of the Elk Valley.
The Elk Valley is blessed with so many amazing streams and it’s not hard to get into the sport living in Fernie, but it’s his grandfather that started his obsession for fly fishing.
Always smiling, Coltons passion for fly fishing is inspirational and a day on the water with him is nothing less than exciting. He enjoys catching numbers of fish but most importantly is the experience he is giving his guests and believes it’s all about the memories you make on the water. He can truly say he’s never had a bad day on the water.
Colton is known for his obsession with char, chasing bull trout in remote waters and is favorite fly to fish for them is the sex dungeon patterns.
The love of guiding stems from his passion and sharing his knowledge.
We asked what Colton does when he’s not fishing - the answer was easy - exploring new fisheries and new waters. His bucket list place to fish would be anywhere for arctic char on the tree river and also for brookies.
We are stoked to have Colton as part of the Fernie Fly Fishing guide team.
