About the Author
A passionate angler, artist and illustrator for most of his life, Trevor Hawkins has been fishing both fresh and saltwater for over five decades. In his earlier years he started and managed his own printing business, which he was involved with for some twenty years. During that period he still fished every moment he got as well as continuing on with his art career also. In the late 1990’s he stepped away from the printing business completely to concentrate entirely on pursuing a full time career as an angling and outdoor author, angling illustrator in magazines and books, and also becoming an editor for a specialist freshwater fishing magazine.
His main fishing passion is chasing wilderness river trout with light fly rods and small flies, but he is equally at home chasing lake trout and saltwater fish or casting lures for other fish species, particularly in remote locations out of a kayak.
His other passion is heading into wilderness areas via hiking or 4-W-Driving and camping while photographing and sketching anything and everything that catches his eye.
