Campbell joined the team in April 2021 as he finished up his high school career. We're happy to have him on board for the summer (and beyond?) as he begins the next stage of his life and continues on to University of Calgary in the fall. We were introduced to Campbell via his Dad who's been a long-time Fish Tales customer.
Please complete the following which will be used to put together or add to an on-line profile about you for the Fish Tales Guides page.
How long have you been fishing? – Been around the sport since 2006 when I was about three years old, but I only started taking it seriously and learning about fly fishing 2 years ago (2019).
How long have you been fly fishing? – I have been fly fishing since I was a kid, but I’ve had trouble keeping focus and sticking with it, as I started getting older, the culture and atmosphere surrounding this sport really began to appeal to me. The fly tying courses I took at the shop really spiked my interest and helped to get me started.
How did you get started in fly fishing? – My Dad, Ben Rogers, has been fly fishing pretty much since he could walk so naturally, he did his best to pass on his interest in fishing to me. Eventually his persistence paid off and I too would rather be fly fishing at any given time.
