Having grown up on the waters of Vancouver Island, Captain Kelly has always felt a strong connection with the coast and had an unwavering passion for fishing. His guiding career began as a teenager fishing on the inside waters of Nanoose Bay and since then has taken him all over the British Columbia coast guiding in the fishing and photography industry. During the off-seasons, the captain attended the University of British Columbia, obtaining a degree in Environment and Sustainability, and worked in the helicopter industry. His other interests include steelheading, freediving, and camping. On his days off, he's typically exploring a new area of the coast with a fishing rod and camera in hand.
