Yep we sold the farm, we’re off the rock. Bye-bye Vancouver Island, bye-bye B.C. Ferries, bye-bye Christy Clark we’re out of here!

Don’t get me wrong living and fishing on Vancouver Island is truly great after all it is Canada’s California but we have four grand kids now and one more on the way and that trumps it all. So for the fourth time in my life I’m Alberta bound. Off to the flat lands where you can wave to your neighbour two miles away and guess the wind speed by counting Tumbleweeds per hour.

More central location…

We need easier access to the game fish species so popular to the country like Musky, Pike, Walleye, Bass, Pan fish and Trout. Living in Alberta will put us closer to these fish without paying B.C. Ferries $200.00 a ride.

Anyone interested in sponsoring our show should contact us now.
We are looking for filming locations, guide services, events and lodges where we can highlight your service at no cost to you other than amenities. The main sponsor, the Electron Fish Attractor is capable of funding the project in its entirety.

We urge all interested to follow us on Facebook and Twitter as we are filming, we will be posting daily where internet conditions allow.

The other day Rachel and I had the pleasure of taking the stars of the TV show Two Men and Their Fishing Rods fishing for Sockeye in the Alberni Inlet. We started our day before sunrise joining about fifty or so boats all working the China Creek area. After about a half an hour it was clear that there was no action and the Sockeye today would not co-operate as planned. I ran three dummy flashers per side but three feet above the top flasher I ran a small Coyote Spoon two feet above and two feet behind the longest flasher.  The spoons had the Electron secured to the hook with elastic thread, no flasher.

As it got brighter out the fish started to bite for us and in the next two hours we played Sockeye Basketball with fish after fish. We were getting bites about every five minutes, lots of double plays, lots of hits and misses, lots of frowns from other boaters, our guests had pointed out to us that no one had seen any other boat catch a fish. Our two guests had a ball, we were all laughing hard making too much noise, our stereo was playing blue grass too loud.
The morning was playing out as too much fun.

But as every Sockeye angler knows the fish make the rules and after two hours of fun the fish quit biting, we had a half dozen in the box and had twenty or so on. We never did see any other boat catch a fish, the lads were impressed.

Watch for the episode in 2016

UPDATE, the show airing date is APRIL 16, 2017
will post link here as soon as we can.

How to Fish Drifting Rivers

Back in the day we used a canoe to drift rivers.  Most of the time we only used the boat for transportation to the hot spots and we would fish from shore or wade.  When we did fish from a boat, only one person could fish, the other would be in charge of boat control.  Today I still see the odd canoe on the river, but most of the crafts I encounter are personal pontoon boats.  These boats are perfect, a good set of oars gives you great
