John Avery, AKA Jumpin John or Longevity John, has been a Fernie fixture for over 15 years. John has worked in Fly Shops, Guided, tied flies, and is a fall time Steelheader.
He is defined as a "character" as he always has something to say about everything. Having John on the oars telling stories makes a day on the river an enlightening experience. Make sure to ask him about the "bear" story! Be sure to let us know early if you want to request John as he is often booked by the other shops in town.
