Camille Egdorf Fishing Guide & Adventurer
Aside from the usual “you have your dad’s nose” or “you got your height from your dad”, my dad and I both have a great love for wild places because a large portion of our lives were shaped around them. Neither of us care for being in big cities, being around large amounts of people or having to continuously be reachable in this technological world we live in.
Growing up my dad allowed nature to be my playground and as a result I grew to love and appreciate these wilds places in ways many people never do. Some of the most memorable times were when we would go lake hopping in Alaska in his Cessna 185. On a calm, sunny evening we’d fly to various different lakes where we’d find northern pike.
We’d land and fish shallow weed beds right off the float of the plane. Those quiet evenings spent on a remote lake in the middle of Alaska with my dad were the highlights of my summers. When we find ourselves completely off the grid or back in the middle of Alaska’s wilderness, we both feel as though we’re back home.
