Podcast “Taking Measure” – August – John Barker

Guest: John Barker reads “Visitors” from August in Measure of the Year.

John Barker has had a passion for fishing for as long as he can remember. Born in Liverpool, he and his family came to Canada when he was 9 years old. As a lad he fished rivers and creeks and explored the great outdoors. In the early 1960’s while he was studying at UBC, and looking at the job board, he found what would turn out to be his dream job, a guide at Painters Lodge in Campbell River BC.  John joins Dan MacLennan today from his home in West Vancouver to talk about Roderick Haig-Brown and how he was shaped and influenced by this relationship.

You can link to the Haig-Brown House website here https://www.haig-brown.bc.ca. There you’ll find all kinds of goodies including historical photographs and information about how to experience the house and all it offers in person or virtually.
