Daniel MacLeod

Member since May 2017 Richmond, Canada
Background
I have been avidly fishing local waters around Vancouver and Vancouver Island since I was a little boy. I still feel like that little boy when I am out on the water chasing Salmon. I just love sharing, teaching, and guiding anglers of all experience levels. I feel lucky to get the opportunity to share the beauty of our local area as well as the bounty of our Salmon and Crab fishing with guests from all around the globe. I enjoy watching the big smiles of kids of all ages hook into and fight a wild Pacific Salmon. I am an airline pilot by profession but my passion is fishing and in particular Salmon fishing on the ocean. You are in great hands with me or one of my professional guides. Pursuit Sport Fishing has been in operation since 2012.
Techniques
We mainly troll with downriggers with artificial and frozen bait. We will also cast light tackle to schooling salmon seasonally as the runs permit.
