Description - Vancouver Island Fishing Guide by D C Reid
Blessed with 123 watersheds and millions of salmon, Vancouver Island is fishing heaven. Written by one of the most experienced sportfishing writers in Canada, Vancouver Island Fishing Guide is your best companion for helping you catch the island's big ones. This book covers the entire island--both saltwater and freshwater--and includes fly-, gear-, and Spey fishing. D.C. Reid has fished for more than 50 years and spent decades cruising up and down Vancouver Island, seeking out the distant rivers, local lakes, and the surfline rock piles that spell big kings. All of Vancouver Island is represented: from the remote, such as Kyuquot Sound, to the urban, with the 35 well-stocked lakes in the Victoria area. Well-known rivers such as the Cowichan and Stamp are explored, as well as less well-known beautiful bodies of moving water, and the lakes that supply and feed them. Vancouver Island Fishing Guide is absolutely packed with information that will get you into some great fishing year-round: lures, flies, strategies, techniques, equipment, and hotspots are discussed by season. Many easily-read maps give locations where you'll catch fish. Also included for each area: places to launch; suggested charters, hotels, and local guides; tackle shops; visitors' centers; Internet resources; and more. Vancouver Island is 500 kms (300miles) long and 210 kms (130 miles) wide and is the largest island on the Pacific Coast, from Alaska to South America. Little wonder that its fishing is legendary.
