Chinookie

It was the first time fishing a river and the first run of the day for my new buddy Leo. After a brief demo it was only a few casts before the lion roared, the rod was bent and the fish was ON. The battle was epic as only a Chinook can be and as Leo's hand grabbed the wrist of the tail of his prize, it was trembling. "This is the biggest fish I have ever caught, my first Salmon on the fly and my first fly caught fish in a river." He said as the fish swam back into the depths........ Well what can I say..."There is no Nookie like Chinookie"!!!

Of course there were some other fish on this trip was well, and once all of the banana's were out of the boat we had some good fun with the Sea-Run Bull's

 

Well Done Boys!! and Congratulations Leo on a fish not soon to be forgotten.


A Day in May

Our good friend Martin was here again this spring to sample a little of what fishing the rivers in BC in the spring is all about. After 4 days on the Columbia we decided to do a little Sturgeon Fishing to give the back a rest after wading in all the big rocks of the Columbia. Then we were back at it again on the Squamish and had a brilliant day on the wild Bull Trout that are plentiful in the river at this time. Then it was off to the Vedder to try for some Spring Steelhead. Martin managed to hook one after a long cast to the opposite bank but after a cartwheeling jump and a short run to the middle of the river the fish won its freedom. Then it was back to Sturgeoning and some of the hottest fish we have ever seen. With not a fish under 5 foot and all of them fighting a foot or more over their weight class it was a day we will not soon forget. The weather was unbelievable throughout the trip; bright sunny and HOT. It was sad to say good by but we will see you again in August my friend. So until next time...........
