My dad was a fishing guide in Campbell River when I was a young boy and I have always loved fishing and enjoy sharing my passion with my friends, family, and clients. The West Coast is simply spectacular and nothing beats the adrenaline rush of hooking into a legendary Chinook Salmon or reeling a Halibut or Lingcod up from the depths.
