Peter Charles – Hooked4Life!

A good chunk of a life spent fishing …

Fishing has always been a constant passion for me, starting at the age of six when a neighbour took me and his kids to the side of Grey’s Creek in Cornwall, Ontario, to fish for anything that swam.

We kids used long bamboo poles, wooden floats, a thick, green cord for a fishing line and of course, worms. The catfish we caught went in the frying pan, except for one of mine that ended up in the fire instead, thanks to an overzealous hookset.

My first fly rod was bought from a department store in 1969 and I’ve been hooked by the sport ever since. I’ve been in the industry side of things since 2006 as a pro staff member and a sales representative.

I have my Certified Casting Instructor qualification from the Federation of Fly Fishers.

Currently I am on the Canadian field staff for G. Loomis / Shimano and pro staff for Airflo Fly Lines, Simms, and The Canadian Tube Fly Company.
