April Vokey: From Fly Gal To Angler Mum To Changing The World


Don’t you just love those podcast episodes that make you rethink everything?

You’re in for a treat because that is exactly what April Vokey brought to the table in this conversation.

I had the privilege of meeting with her face to face at iCast recently and we got to sit down and record this one live.

She’s got a resume that any outdoor person would be impressed by:

  • She’s a fly fishing guide in British Columbia
  • She spends half the year in Canada and the other half in Australia
  • She’s never had a 9-5 job (she hustled until she could make a living doing what she loves: fishing)
  • She runs the podcast Anchored, which is one of the most popular fishing podcasts out there.

Oh yeah, and she does ALL of this while being a wife and a mom!

In this episode we cover some heavy-hitting stuff, including:

  • Children and the future of fishing
  • Conservation (and whether you should keep what you catch or not)
  • Women in the fishing industry (and sexuality’s place in it)
  • Why the outdoors is more than just about fishing (and things you can do to experience the outdoors without taking from it)
  • Leaving a legacy for your kids
  • And much more!

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!

I’ve recently been listening to a lot of the podcasts while on the road. I think this is my favorite yet. Not sure if it was due to speaking in person or just a good energy between you two but your conversations were very natural and genuine. Time flew by while listening to it, nice work!
