Scott Gardner

  Despite growing up in southern Ontario, Outdoor Canada associate editor Scott Gardner is happiest when he's on the water or surrounded by trees, preferably out of cell phone range. His particular areas of interest include fly fishing and tying, kayak angling, camping, and urban fisheries.   As a full-time professional writer since 2000, before he joined Outdoor Canada in 2010, Scott covered a variety of fields including technology, hospitality, and entertainment . He's also won two KRW awards (from the Canadian Business Press); a silver for news reporting, and a gold for feature writing.
