Brianne Rutter

I have been fishing since as long as I can remember and grew up with a love for catching walleye and bass at a yearly cottage rental. I grew up in the sailing community and also spent my childhood fishing from docks at several different locations on Lake Ontario on family vacations. 

 In the last few years, my love for fishing has taken off immensely. Living in the city, I never really felt that I had as many opportunities to fish, or people to fish with. Getting involved with many of the women’s events, I have made several connections in the fishing community and found people to go out on the water with as often as I can.

 I love spending time teaching children to fish. I have worked with Toronto Urban Fishing Ambassadors to provide fishing experiences to children with special needs and children from low socio-economic backgrounds.
