Aaron Goodis‘s journey with fly fishing began at the tender age of six, igniting a lifelong passion for the sport. While he possesses a comprehensive understanding of various facets of fly fishing, his primary focus lies in chasing Steelhead across the remote and local rivers of British Columbia. From the renowned Dean River to the formidable Thompson, Aaron’s quest for these elusive fish is unwavering. Beyond his love for angling, Aaron is a devoted landscape, fly fishing, and adventure photographer based in Vancouver, BC.

In this episode of Anchored, we discuss how Aaron got involved in the Spey scene in the early years, his struggle with Crohn’s disease, getting his casting certification, grieving dead river systems, and more.
