In the quiet hours of the morning, Erik Pedersen goes to the Skagit River to do one of his favorite pastimes fly-fishing. It’s not just the relaxation or therapeutic nature of this hobby that he is so passionate about. It’s a pastime that’s been a large part of his life. He often reminisces about the times he spent as a young boy on the water with his father, who taught him the art of fly-fishing. Erik, who is now a proud father himself, anxiously awaits the day when his own son reaches the age where he can pass this tradition on. The fond memories Erik has of this area are just some of the many reasons why he is happy to call Skagit County his home. To Erik, Skagit County has everything in the world that a place needs to make one truly happy.
Rooted in Tradition
Erik knows he’s not the only person living in Skagit County that feels this way about the area. The Skagit River has always been a focal point to local residents. To Erik, this flowing river serves as a metaphor for life. “The Skagit River is always changing. Its current, color, even its sounds are different everyday. It’s a lot like life, each day has new and exciting things to discover and experience,” Erik says. With a previous position as Vice President of Sales for Izod, Erik’s job took him from San Diego to Manhattan, but even with all the culture that big cities offer he never lost interest in coming back to his home on the rivers of Washington.
While traveling during his former career, Erik met his wife, Debbie, who was also from a quiet and rural town. While living in New York, they both knew that the best place to begin a family would be somewhere they had roots as well as a feeling of comfort and familiarity. When Erik’s father passed away and left him the 20-acre estate on the Skagit River, it allowed him to return to his northwestern roots that were so instrumental in his life. Today Erik is one of the area’s most respected businessmen. When his schedule allows, Erik can usually be found on one of the local golf courses, visiting some of the wineries in Walla Walla, or hiking with his son, Gunnar, and wife, Debbie, in the endless and picturesque landscape that surrounds them.
