The Woodside Agency has been appointed to represent Shimano and its G. Loomis, Power Pro and Jackall brands in western Canada.
The Woodside team is directed by Rob Dorcas, who began his career guiding Arctic expeditions in Canada and Europe and who now has 25 years’ sales experience behind him.
He has been back in Canada for the past ten years, where he has built a sales team to service the fishing industry. The company already represents several premium brands in the conventional and fly fishing sectors.
Dorcas’s colleague, Scott Baker McGarva, has more than 30 years’ experience in the West Coast fishing industry, including 16 years in retail and ownership of a Vancouver tackle shop.
He also has 25 years of guiding experience in both freshwater and saltwater and has been a Federation of Fly fishers (FFF) certified casting instructor since 1993.
