Kathy Hamilton


The first picture of Kathy fishing is at the tender age of two off a dock near her family home in New Brunswick. She has remained a fisher throughout her life. Kathy became aware of Casting for Life at the Western Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition and signed up to be a fishing buddy at the 2003 retreat. She has never looked back. Today, as a Director for Casting for Life she contributes her skills as the CFL webmaster, organizing events and teaching about fly fishing and casting.
