My Sugar Pop tying tutorial is live and up on the @meateatertv website! I’ll include the link in my bio. Happy tying!

There’s 1 in every family. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Have you ever looked at a steelhead and wondered why it’s eye is looking straight ahead? If you’re like me, you may have heard that this means a fish is either dead or close to dying. Myself, I was certain I’d caught fish exhibiting “dead-eye” that swam away healthy, but I started to wonder. My latest article dives into the science behind dead-eye and may help shed some light on the matter. Link in my profile! Thanks for reading! #keepemwet @meateatertv

The latest episode of Anchored is live and featuring @tom_rowland !

Tom is probably best known today as host of the television series, @saltwater_experience , and the Tom Rowland Podcast — but Tom has a deeply rooted career in the fly-fishing industry, starting as a guide in Wyoming before moving to guide in the Florida Keys. In this episode of Anchored, I sit down with Tom to learn more about his past, and to discuss tournaments, television, and more.

It’s done!! The metal sculpture wizard @pacific_metal_arts has put the fly in and completed the final coat! I am absolutely itching to get this hung up here in BC! Soon! Give the man a follow to see more unique art and inspiration. 🙌🏻

Some time ago, I did a post on Instagram about a litter trap that captured garbage before it could make its way into sensitive waterways (thank you @flylords for bringing it to my attention). As promised, I’ve put together a short blog with the who, what, why, when, where, and how, in hopes that we might be able to get more litter traps installed around the world. Thanks for reading!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! 🍁

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving. I have never been so thankful or felt so fulfilled. 🦃 🙏🏻 ❤️

New article up about Bolivia and the adventures beyond the fishing. I had a great time researching all sorts of creepy crawlers... including vampire fish (candiru) that are said to swim up your urine stream to lodge themselves in your urethra. 🤦🏻‍♀️ All sorts of interesting facts in this one that I wish I knew before I went on my trip. Enjoy! Link in my profile or head over to the new www.themeateater.com site to see more! Pics by @andrew_burr #keepemwet @meateatertv

Just posted an article on fish trapping and how it may be a solution to bycatch. Curious to hear your thoughts on it! The link is in my profile, or you can head over to the new www.themeateater.com website. Thanks for reading (scroll straight to the bottom to watch the video if that’s more your cup of tea)! 🙏🏻 @steelheadsocietybc @wildfishconservancy @meateatertv

My heart!! 💕. First fish, first reel. She loves it and I’m melting.

The latest episode of Anchored is live and featuring @jimshockeyofficial ! www.themeateater.com/listen/anchored-with-april-vokey/jim-shockey-the-hunter

Jim is a hunting icon. As a longtime outfitter, writer, television personality, and spokesperson, Jim has spent his fair share of time outdoors. Passionate about natural history and cultural arts, he recently opened the doors to the Hand of Man museum, an incredible display of historical artifacts that line the walls of an old school he converted for public viewing. I met with Jim at the Hand of Man museum to hear his story, and to ask him some questions about public land, high fences, and today’s modern hunter. Enjoy! @meateatertv
