Derek is an avid fisherman and floating enthusiast that hails from White Rock, British Columbia. He is originally from Ontario and spent many of his summers fishing growing up. Some of his fondest memories as a kid were looking for that elusive northern pike in lakes scattered across Ontario and Quebec. While he does not get as much of a chance to fish now a days he still brings his trusty rod and tackle box anytime he travels to Shuswap Lake. Derek can be found in his spare time tinkering with his kayaks and inflatable paddle board anytime he gets a chance. Lately he can be found working on his website https://floatingauthority.com/ that reviews fishing gear, kayaks, paddle boards and anything that floats!
