Matt grew up in Mississauga, Ontario where his fishing addiction manifested while chucking top water poppers, frogs and mice into the thickest slop God could slap together. Throwing your bait into lily pads, bulrushes and submerged trees may intimidate most anglers but Matt grew up with the notion that you should get the fish on first then worry about it.

Ever since I can remember I’ve loved fishing. Its my passion, it’s my hobby and I’m lucky enough to call it my job. Being born and raised in British Columbia I have grown up fishing these pristine waters my whole life, from raging rivers to the open ocean I’m always on the chase for the next big bite. Check out my YouTube channel “Getting Spooled” with over 6000  subscribers for fishing related videos.

The day I first picked up a fly rod was the day I realized what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. To me, fly fishing is not just an outdoor activity, it’s a way of life. Whether I’m at my bench tying up flies or on the water, I am where I was born to be. Now, with having over 5 years experience fly fishing for multiple species all over BC, my goal is to show others the wonders of nature, and catching fish on the fly. Checkout my youtube channel and instagram, “ivyflyfishing” for instructional and recreational fly fishing content.
