Raised On The Vancouver Island Waters And A Life Spent Amongst The Tides.

Meet Your Captain, Kelly Aspinall.

Raised on Vancouver Island, Kelly’s life has long been led around the ocean. He developed a fondness for fishing that grew throughout his childhood, and began guiding amid the inside waters of Nanoose Bay shortly thereafter as a teenager. Although guiding pulled him around much of the province, he diligently offset the fishing seasons by attending school at the University Of British Columbia, securing a degree in Environment and Sustainability. When he’s not at the helm, you’ll usually find him freediving in the depths below, or exploring the veined river systems of our rugged coast, searching for steelhead with his fishing rod and his camera in tow.
