The FlyFish Fanatic

Rick is the author of the “Freshman FlyFisher” book series, providing easy to read information for new fishers, complete with handy illustrations and photos. The books cover all of the fly fishing basics and tactics, and dispel any lingering myths about the sport; a sport Rick insists “is really for everyone.”

When Rick isn’t fishing, teaching, or writing, Rick is expanding his vast knowledge of entomology and relaxing with his wife and son at his home in central Alberta.
