Marshall came to West Yellowstone with his Dad on a fly fishing trip back in 2016 when he stumbled into Justin’s first fly shop, The West Yellowstone Fly Shop. He and Justin chatted during that week and towards the end of the trip, Justin offered Marshall a job in what was to become Big Sky Anglers in the spring of 2017.
He grew up in Enderby, British Columbia and comes from the Secwepmc Nation, in English it is Shuswap; he is personally from the Splatsin First Nation’s band. He is currently a senior at the university of Lethbridge in southern Alberta and will graduate with BS in Environmental Sciences with a focus on Hydrology and Environmental Assessment in May of 2021.
Marshall took Justin up on his offer and started working in the fly shop for BSA in the summer of 2017; he spent all of his time off fishing and learning as much as he could before returning to BC for college. Once again in 2018 Marshall came back and spent the summer working the shop floor. In his third season at the shop he started running clinics and learning what it takes to guide fishing in Greater Yellowstone Country.
Last season, Marshall started running full day guide trips for BSA, quickly becoming a requested guide and earning his spot on the roster. This season, we brought Marshall on as a full time guide and are excited to watch him grow! When not fishing, Marshall enjoys playing hockey, as any good Canadian-American does, and he’s also refurbishing a 1979 Ford Pickup.
