Guide at a Glance
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I lived and breathed for the outdoors from a young age. I was surrounded by great friends who had a passion for hunting and fishing and we would spend countless hours camping, fishing or hunting on the Rideau River, Irish Creek and the Ottawa River. Surrounded by moose heads, bear mounts and racks of guns at the Army Surplus store in Jasper, Ontario, I soaked up every hunting and fishing story from local guides and old friends. It was as if Red Fisher himself was leaning on the counter sharing his past adventures.
As a kid I realized how big fishing and hunting trips were to people from around the world and as I got older, I wanted to see the tundra and the mountains, and write my own stories, and so I did. At age 23, after graduating Collage, I moved to British Columbia to work as a Forest Fire Fighter and a lead mountain guide at a resort. A couple years later I was asked to join Mountain Search and Rescue. I was trained as a first responder for backcountry rescues in some of the remotest parts of B.C while working with some amazing team members along the way.
As time went on, and it became the norm of sitting in a helicopter or float plane and flying into the backcountry, I would smile and remember the days of hunting and fishing on lakes and rivers in Ontario with pals, and the stories from older gents now long gone. I always knew I would have a guiding company back home and I set the plan in motion to start up IrishCreek Outfitters back home in Ontario. If catching that fish of a lifetime or picking the brain of a Cabela’s Canada Pro Staffer for tips and tricks of the trade or just outsmarting that huge Tom Turkey is on your bucket list, then check us out. We make dreams happen.
