The Cowichan river has literally been Kenzie’s back yard since the early 1990′s when he purchased his first piece of riverfrontage. He has an intimate knowledge of the fishing habitat and is closely in tune with the ever-changing conditions of the river. Fishing and conservation has always been a huge part of Kenzie’s life. Since the age of 11, Kenzie has accumulated 39 years of fishing experience, of which the last 23 have been spent as a fishing guide. He is now the successful owner/operator of the Cowichan River Wilderness Lodge located on the upper section of the Cowichan river. This location is the gateway to the many other fisheries that Kenzie guides. For the past number of years, he has been field staff for the highly regarded companies of Sage, Islander Reels, RIO Fly Lines, Redington and Gibbs/Nortac. This allows the opportunity for his guests to use these premium products when they fish with him.
Kenzie has been featured in various television shows which include ”Hooked on Fishing” with Paul Young in the UK and “Columbia Country” in the US. National television shows include “Fish N Canada” “Get Out” with Shelly and Courtenay, “Sportfishing on the Fly”, and “Sportfishing BC”.
