Kevin has been fishing all his life, spending the last 15 years fly fishing and guiding in the Whistler area. Whether fishing or guiding, Kevin can be found on the water some 200 days a year. Given a choice he would rather be on a river fly-fishing for Steelhead above anything else.
Brian began fishing at an early age in the Okanagan Valley where he grew up. Starting with spinners and worms in the creek behind his family home, he began a lifelong pursuit for trout, salmon, steelhead and most recently, tropical sportfish. Fly fishing became a passion as a teenager and the lakes and streams on BC’s Interior were his targets. A move to Whistler in 1974 brought more fishing challenges with the mysteries of salmon and steelhead angling. Brian founded Whistler Fishing Guides in 1988 and with his wife managed a group of very talented guides. In the spring of 2015, Brian left his “real job” as the Safety and Risk Manager for Whistler Blackcomb. Chris Leighton, Brian’s wife makes sure he keeps busy guiding now that he has all this free time. Brian is keen to pass on his years of knowledge to those new to the sport or new to fishing in the Whistler area. Brian, Chris and Whistler Fishing Guides look forward to hosting new and returning clients for many years to come.
