Holger, what an afternoon! I am hopeful you have been enjoying your salmon back home by this time? What a delicious treat to ship home and share with friends and family. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review.

Thanks for that helpful review. Always great for future guests to have helpful suggestions on deck. I'm always pleased when reading the feedback our guests leave regarding safety and conservation. Thanks for taking note of our efforts in these fields. 👍

Never give up. Brin didn't. At the "1 minute warning mark" before we returned to Tofino - Dad's rules, not Brin's - we had caught 1 salmon. And then in a last moment, "Hail Mary" flurry, we had 4 more, including a 25 lb beauty....More

What an amazing last minute countdown! A flurry of 5 salmon in 15 minutes with the last being the big 25 lb'r! Loved every minute of it you guys. Can't wait to do it again in 2018! 😎

I chartered Brin and his Grady white for 3 days over Canada day. When the sea was calm we caught bottom fish and got one of everything. Brin is an excellent salmon guide. When others got skunked we still tubbed out.
