One of my favourite things to do each Fall is venture into northern BC and swing flies for the wild steelhead in the Skeena River system. It's as much about the journey as the destination. Driving from Vancouver up to Smithers has become a ritual of sorts, I love the...

Overall it has been a really solid Fall season of salmon fishing on the local rivers in and around Vancouver. We've seen healthy numbers of returning fishing starting in early October and that's carried right through. As I write this on November 12th, we're still enjoy really good fishing on...

Lael and I met each other for the first time at the Dallas International Airport. Islander Reels, had invited us on a trip to Argentina, along with Vancouver Island based rod builder Andy Sneddon. Lael was posted up at the airport bar, he had just flown in from Seattle and...
