Flyfishing Instructor - Ken Thate
My Dad first introduced me to fishing when I was four years old in northern British Columbia. Many trips over time made fishing a passion. Fly Fishing and Fly tying soon became a way of life.
With over 35 years of Fly fishing & Fly tying, I eventually rose to the top with my personal fly patterns. I placed 2nd in an Eagle Claw fly tying contest which ran across Canada & the USA. In 1991 My winning Fly pattern was featured in a Canadian Magazine “The Western Sportsman” from Regina, Saskatchewan and “Fly Rod & Reel” magazine from Des Moines, Iowa.
My continued passion and expertise for fly tying drew attention from Robert Jones, an editor on Vancouver island. Robert Jones & Paul Marriner, published a hardcover book called “A Compendium of Canadian Fly Patterns” which features two dozen of my patterns.
I have also built custom fly rods.
Besides fly fishing, I have also placed first in Alberta in the Master Angler tournament circuit.
Being an avid scuba diver, when under water, I make a point of watching the behavior of the various food sources for game fish, returning to my vise to better design fly patterns to mimic the food sources.
