Son’s first fishing experience

Son’s first fishing experience

I’ve got two young boys, and the future looks bright. My oldest and I took the time on fathers day to get out and try some fishing. He was excited, he had no clue what he was really about to do. At 2 1/2 it’s...

Winter Steelhead

Winter Steelhead

I’ve been fishing a long time, and fishing for steelhead for about 4-5 years. I’ve hooked a few, and landed none, until now. I was able to book a day off work and get out on the river with Matt, we used his two person...

Getting the itch

Getting the itch

It’s been over two months since I have had the chance to wet my boots, swing some flys, or focus on my float so intently I’m almost sure it went down… But it didn’t. My great friend Lang over at www.fishingguidebc.com has offered me a...

Short stints

Short stints

Been taking short little lunch stops, maybe 20-25 minutes out there. Earlier this week I tried the Stave and hooked up with a Chum, but lost it before landing it. I had a good tusle with it, so I wasn’t too upset with the long...

Coho Salmon 2015

Coho Salmon 2015

Coho Salmon have to be one of my favourite species of fish. They are small enough that lighter tackle works, and they’re feisty enough to keep things quite entertaining. They jump, twist, run, and on top of a good fight, they taste great. There are...

Fishing Chinooks on the Upper Pitt

Casting

There is a discussion on one of the local forums about casting distance. I find our local fishing opportunities in the Lower Mainland of BC do not require mega casts. The biggest River besides the Fraser is the Harrison, and that could be one location...
