Beautiful morning at the beach in Tofino even though the sky was blanketed by marine mist. The tide was at its lowest and visitors could be seen exploring the intertidal zone. The diversity of British Columbia's landscapes and their inhabitants is simply amazing. In a few days from now, I'll be going from this to the "Fishing Highway" in the Caribou region where you have enough lakes to fish in this lifetime. What more could you ask for? ❀️#spoiled #simplyamazing #biodiversity #westcoastbestcoast #vancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #wcvi #tofino #fishingbc #bcfishing #mycrystalcove #fishingwithrod #wefishhere #intertidal #lowtide #beachcombing #explorebc

Been studying and getting ready for this summer. The newest element of fly fishing for me is the beaches and I absolutely love it. The scenery, wildlife, people, fish and every other element of it captivate me. See you on the beach! #estuaryflyfishing #flyfishing #vancouverisland #wcvi

From near the mouth of thr Heber River in Mowachaht/Muchalaht territory.

This is only a couple blocks from downtown Gold River. Grateful to spend a couple days out here.

We got to see the sun today!!! #groundfishsurvey #wcvi

Thank you Rogez Perez, Lydia Camarillo, and Justice Dori Contreras Garza for coming out last night to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. @svrep #30thanniversary #wcvi #suvozessuvoto #willieturns30

Happy Friday! Hope you get to reel in a big one this weekend! πŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ‘ #Repost @fishing_with_rod
It's not ten pounds! 😁 New video is up on our YouTube channel, featuring our trip to @murphysportfishing in Kyuquot Sound! #vancouverisland #wcvi #explorebc #kyuquotsound #kyuquot #bcfishing #fishbc #ourmissionfishin #thewaytofish #fishshimanobc #fishingwithrod #fishingvideo #halibutfishing #halibut #bighalibut #bigfish #deepseafishing

Since we started doing saltwater episodes, @kittykanhoffen and I have always wondered who's going to get very seasick first, and whoever barfs first, the other person must film it. Sometimes we get so anxious about seasickness before we head out that we make ourselves sick. πŸ˜‚ To this day, neither of us have yet to puke, but I think we came pretty close at last year's trip to Kyuquot. πŸ˜† It was reasonably "calm" when we filmed "Inshore Lingcod Tactics" with @murphysportfishing compared to the swells from the day before, but condition was still pretty rough for filming. Just think several feet of vertical movement, while the boat spins slowly, like the spinning tea cup ride at the amusement park. Now imagine staring into the tiny viewfinder of the camera and focusing on either Dave and me for a few hours while this was going on. 😨 Yep, that's how our poor camerawoman felt that morning. She fought through to the end and this was the aftermath, but you should know that Kitty recovered quickly and went on to haul in a bunch of lingcod, halibut and salmon the rest of that day. πŸ‘ Her persistence is why she is involved in most of our productions. πŸ˜‰ I think she did a pretty awesome job considering what we were up against, check out the video yourself if you haven't already. Link is in the bio. 😁 #seasick #trooper #almost #fishingbc #bcfishing #girlscanfishtoo #lingcod #lingcodfishing #fishingwithrod #kyuquot #behindthescene #notalwaysglamorous #gofishbc #thewaytofish #shimanokeepsyoufishing #wefishhere #explorevi #explorebc #wcvi #vancouverisland #seafishing 🎣

It's always sunny in Tla-o-qui-aht territory. They just finished a new connector trail to Tonquin Beach from the south so you can trip into town from Mackenzie via trails and beaches only.

How many this time? In September 2016 the Conuma Hatchery tested a drone for counting fish. Thanks to Chris Erickson for the footage.

Stream surveyors from Nootka Sound met today in Gold River to discuss salmon escapement estimates from 2016. It was a pretty good year for Chum, Chinook and Coho stocks in most systems in Area 25.

On day two of our 2016 review meeting series experts from #clayoquotsound reported the worst survey conditions seen in more than 40 years, big coho and lots of chum #salmon #tofino #tofinobotanicalgardens #bedwell #tranquil #cypre #megin #escapement #nuuchalahnulth #collaboration #communication #reporting #data #westcoast #WCVI

Today surveyors and other experts on Barkley Sound streams got together to discuss observations and escapement estimates for 2016 #bigcoho #habitat #salmon #westcoast #portalberni #DFO #surveyors #snorkelsurvey #stockassessment #WCVI #barkley #area23 #nahmint #sarita #nitinat

How many fish do you see? Just started planning the #DFO salmon escapement survey workshops again. In February 2017 surveyors from the west coast of Vancouver Island will meet to discuss the numbers of fish that returned to #WCVI streams in 2016 #stockassessment #salmon #fisheries #chinook #snorkle #vanisle #monitoring #data #rivers

Mr. Fuzzy Caterpillar curled up for a snooze. Jk he's probably curling up in terror, the poor thing. Any guesses as to where I got to spend my day today? Hint: my most favourite place
