Daniel Favato

Daniel grew up in the suburban outskirts of Toronto, Ontario, spending his early days targeting migratory steelhead and brown trout with spey rod in hand. His first job in the fishing industry was as a deckhand on a Lake Ontario sportfishing boat. Over the course of seven seasons, Dan has earned his position as one of the top salmon charter captains in Toronto.

More recently, Daniel graduated from the television and film production program at Niagara College, and he has started pursuing outdoor video production full time. He brings a strong understanding of the modern media landscape and the foundations of video production to the GFFI team. His skills as an online content creator will help bring a fresh perspective to the sport for both seasoned fly fisherman, and a new generation of anglers.
