People We Met: Frank

During this trip we met with west coast guide François Blanchet, originally from Quebec, he moved to BC to pursue his passion for snowboarding but his addiction to fly fishing eventually took over. He is now a full time local guide and lives with his girlfriend Nadia. They both enjoy nature and benefit from its various ressources while respecting what surrounds them. Frank is all about pursuing his passion to the fullest and enjoying life.

People we met: Montie Braun

During our roadtrip we met Montie Braun, a local chainsaw sculptor. Montie was kind enough to sculpt a unique wolf head for Derek’s camp. Montie is a one of a kind artist; he transformed a log into a wolf head in just a few minutes, he inspires himself from nature, wildlife and the people that surround him.

“Good people make me who I am”
