Dillon has been part of the Fish Tales crew since the summer of 2019. He works part-time throughout the year while attending the Alberta College of Arts (photography). Dillon was a customer long before starting at the shop and we've watched him progress as an angler and tier. When not in the shop or at school he generally has a fly rod or a camera in hand or a skateboard or set of skis underfoot. He takes some pretty amazing pics and does some crazy tricks on skis.
