Captain Alex West has been fishing for Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead since he can remember. A native to Vancouver Island, he practically grew up with a rod in his hand, so it's only natural that he's an avid angler. He's perfected his technique over the course of his life, and knows exactly what it takes to land the trophy-sized beauties. He hopes to share his secrets with you so that you can see why he loves it so much.
