Beverly was riding along in fishing boats before she could walk, and began fishing as soon as she could hold a rod. She was born and raised in Vernon, British Columbia and grew up fishing the small mountain lakes for trout. Beverly spent her early teens belly-boating and fishing river systems for steelhead and salmon. Her growing passion for fishing then led her to the big lakes, targeting big rainbows, lakers and salmon.
Her favourite lakes are Shuswap, Kalamalka, Okanagan, Mabel and Kinbasket. Beverly regularly fishes the annual Shuswap Lake Derby and recently took a lead roll in organizing the event.
