Melanie learned to fish and appreciate the great outdoors as a young girl during summers at the family cottage near Burk’s Falls, Ontario. She loves any kind of fishing but especially bass fishing and deep sea fishing. Melanie recently learned to fly fish thanks to a Soldier On programme. She loves teaching and is keen to pass along her knowledge to others. She is particularly proud that her children are learning to enjoy fishing and fly tying. When Melanie isn’t fishing, she teaches yoga.
