New World Record Salmon

Huge Chinook Salmon Caught in B.C.

This massive Chinook Salmon was caught by fishing guide Tyler Mills, and tourist Deborah Whitman-Perry, in British Columbia near Rivers Inlet. The battle was hard and lasted almost an hour, but was finally landed. The salmon tipped the scales at 38 kilograms (almost 84 pounds!), more than twice that of the line strength used, and was live released in hopes that it will spawn again this year.

April Vokey Syndrome Is Spreading

We posted a photos of April last year, but didn’t know much about her at the time. Thanks to SwittersB, know we know a just a little bit more. April is a top notch fly-fishing columnist, instructor, guide and more.
Whoever said girls can’t fish needs to see this girl in action.

    My name is April Vokey and I am a fishing guide in the Fraser Valley.
    As a fly-fishing columnist, instructor, guide and steelhead stalker, there is hardly a day that goes by that I’m not chasing fish.
    It would sincerely be my pleasure to have you join me on these epic days to introduce and host you, novice or experienced angler, to our fantastic fishery and beautiful waters.
    I look forward to sharing this wonderful and memorable experience with you.

When April’s not catching huge fish, she can be found helping out the Stealhead Society by accepting fly donations.
