Growing up on a family farm in Northern Michigan, Kathy Scott, early in life, gained an appreciation for all things natural. She carried this love of nature with her when she transplanted to Maine. There, at the edge of the Great North Woods, she and husband David Van Burgel have chosen to live close to nature, sharing their chain of ponds with moose, mink and beaver.
Kat’s passion to understand the natural world intertwines with David’s dedication to handcrafting fine split bamboo fly rods; theirs is a lifelong immersion in the out-of-doors and the deep meaning of friendship. When not in Maine or Michigan, they are most likely to be found with their dog Kodiak poking about wild places.
