My name is Frank Brassard, I’m based in the heart of the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. When I’m not chasing trout, grayling, pike, or salmon, I’m tying flies to catch them. I’ve discovered fishing later in life. After many years of high adrenaline sports such as rock-climbing, ice climbing, skiing, and mountain biking, flyfishing became my way to continue to discover new places and to be in nature.
I have a tendency to fully dive into new hobbies, which consequently lead me to fly-tying. I now tie flies on a daily basis. It’s a creative outlet that flirts with meditation and relaxation. This is becoming a lifelong process of learning new techniques and experimenting with new products. Partnering up with Textreme is an important step in that learning process.
