We have added another great package to our hosted trip program, partnering with Oliver’s Sportfishing Adventures to deliver a 3 day course focused on fishing two-handed rods for Pacific salmon.  This course will run from November 9-11th and is open to anglers of all skill levels.

This course is developed to teach anglers how to approach fall salmon with a two handed fly rod. This is a great course for beginners and experienced anglers alike, designed to teach you the skills to swing a fly for fall salmon species including Chum, Chinook and Coho. You will be joining a great group of like-minded individuals and fishing the main stem Fraser and Harrison Rivers. We will be providing hotel accommodations and lunches on the water as well as all the flies, leaders and sink tips. We focus on targeting fresh migratory salmon on either of the systems and will teach you what type of flies and techniques to allow you to target them effectively.  These fish are fresh, incredibly strong and very enjoyable on a two-handed rod.

Instruction on the Water Includes:

  • Fly selection based on timing, species and light conditions

  • How to properly execute Skagit style Spey casts

  • Knots, leader & rod setups

  • Sink tip selection

  • Selecting fishable water

  • Effectively recognizing and fishing traveling lanes that the fish use to migrate upstream

  • Recognizing and targeting the different species of salmon in the river

  • How to play & land big fish in current
