Dwayne MillerDwayne Miller – I was born and presently reside on Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been chasing trout around PEI since the age of 5 and found out about flyrods at 12. I continued to fish both for a few more years but in 1988 that all changed as my good friend and mentor, Scott Mitchell turned me onto chasing Atlantic salmon with the flyrod. This was a life changing moment, and I’ve been on a mad whirl’wind ride chasing these magnificent fish ever since.
