Fly Fish Yukon is a media company based in Whitehorse, Yukon. The Yukon Territory has incredible fishing to offer, and our goal is to highlight it, while educating the public on how to fish in a respectful and sustainable manner. Although Fly Fish Yukon's focus is mostly related to fly fishing, we spend a great amount of time chasing fish for video or photo imagery, without necessarily fishing.

The company was created in the spring of 2020 by Justin Kennedy and Gabriel Rivest, two long time Yukoners with a passion for photography, videography and fly fishing.

Justin moved to the Yukon in the fall of 2009 and took up fly fishing shortly after. Fascinated by the river systems and clear water Justin purchased an underwater camera housing and started photographing life underwater. Justin moved to Australia for a few years where he worked as a newspaper/action photographer and tested his fly fishing skills in the world of saltwater. After chasing pelagics and dodging crocodiles in Northern Australia, Justin and his family moved back to the Yukon in 2019 and is back exploring these waterways of the north.

Gabe is a professional biologist, who has had the chance to work on several fisheries projects in the Territory over the years. Before that, Gabe was a canoe/fishing guide, so a fair amount of his working career has evolved around exploring rivers and lakes throughout the Yukon. In 2013, Gabe organized and led a 2 months canoe trip through the Peel and Yukon Watershed, to create the award winning documentary, Paddle for the North.
