Vancouver Island offers the finest salmon fishing found anywhere in the world. Some destinations are easily accessible, while others are in remote wilderness settings. This informative book reveals where they are, when to go, and how to fish once you arrive.
In writing this book, experienced saltwater anglers Larry Stefanyk and Robert Jones tapped the expertise of over fifty professional fishing guides, resort operators, lure manufacturers and local highliners to compile the kind of knowledge that is usually gained only through years of on-the-water experience.
The greatest strength of Island Salmon Fisherman is that in addition to the latest in fishing techniques, it offers insider knowledge where the fish are to be found. In all, it documents 826 hotspots and important locations--each accompanied by GPS coordinates for easy reference on a marine chart or GPS device.
Coverage runs down the west coast from Quatsino Sound, Kyuquot Sound, Zeballos, Nootka Sound, Clayoquot Sound, Ucluelet, Alberni Inlet, Bamfield, Port Renfrew, Sooke, to Victoria. East coast coverage includes waters around Port Hardy, Telegraph Cove and Blackfish Sound, Sayward, Campbell River, Heriot Bay, Comox Valley, Qualicum, Parksville, Schooner Cove to Nanaimo, the Gulf Islands and Sidney.
Each destination is covered in thorough detail, all lavishly supported with pictures, illustrations and maps.
