A Day in May

clock May 16, 2010 13:21 by author curtis

Our good friend Martin was here again this spring to sample a little of what fishing the rivers in BC in the spring is all about. After 4 days on the Columbia we decided to do a little Sturgeon Fishing to give the back a rest after wading in all the big rocks of the Columbia. Then we were back at it again on the Squamish and had a brilliant day on the wild Bull Trout that are plentiful in the river at this time. Then it was off to the Vedder to try for some Spring Steelhead. Martin managed to hook one after a long cast to the opposite bank but after a cartwheeling jump and a short run to the middle of the river the fish won its freedom. Then it was back to Sturgeoning and some of the hottest fish we have ever seen. With not a fish under 5 foot and all of them fighting a foot or more over their weight class it was a day we will not soon forget. The weather was unbelievable throughout the trip; bright sunny and HOT. It was sad to say good by but we will see you again in August my friend. So until next time...........

I had posted this post back at the beginning of September of a show we filmed with Jimmy Houston and have since received some pictures from the trip as well as the approximate date of Airing of the show. We will see the show air on the Versus Network sometime in mid July and when I get the exact date I will let everyone know..... Cheers

 

   

 

August 23rd saw us on the water with fishing legend Jimmy Houston filming for an upcoming episode. We managed to get a fly rod into his hands, and he made it work, showing us how it was done on his second cast by hooking a large Chinook which threw him on a jump. We hooked a number of Sockeye salmon and a couple of beautiful Bull Trout at various parts of the river before heading to the "Ace In the Hole" at he last part of the day. Jimmy and his daughter Sherri lit it up with Sockeye after Sockeye and didn't stop until long after the camera was out of film and the batteries were dead. It was awesome to see someone who has been fishing for so long and done just about everything still lovin' it so much...... Well Done Jimmy.

Pictures will be coming soon and I will post the air time of the show when we find it out.
