Scammell's day job is practicing Family and Matrimonial law in Red Deer, Alberta, but he spends a great deal of time at his Stump Ranch sixty miles west of that city, fishing and doing the entomological "research" that has resulted in his most recent book The Phenological Fly, published in May this year.
In 1987, Scammel went to England as a member of the first Canadian team ever to compete in the World Fly Fishing Championship. He has fished coast to coast in Canada and extensively in the U.S. West.
