losing track

 We're losing track of how many years we have been fishing together.  Michael and Beth have only missed a couple of years in the last decade and a half, or so.  And , we have been losing track of the number of fish caught and released on this trip.  Steve and Bessy have joined in , as they have in several recent years, for these two day fishing trips, and this time fishing with Eiji again. As is in previous years, Bessie has been the standout fish catcher , and if we knew the secret we'd bottle it. That boat released a lot of fish. 
It's wonderful , you have made your reservations for next year ! 

 There was lots of herring and krill around , and two humpback whales came by .

loves Campbell River fishing

 David loves fishing from Campbell River.  He is very interested in all the details, and of course catching a chinook salmon like this one.

take a break

 Chris and Cindy are super busy , but they squeezed in a drive and fishing trip to take a break.  They make a trip every year, and it has been different and good every time.

Three Generations

It was three generations of fishing fun over two days . We came in at each midday for a crew change so that everyone could get some of the action . Aidan , the teenager , is the keenest of all , and eagerly assisted from setting the gear to netting the occasional fish. 
 Thanks everyone for coming again this year. What a wonderful excuse to get all the ages together .

off hand remarks

Brent and Tom made it all work out nicely , on this sunny breezy day. Brent is left handed , but that doesn't slow him down, and Tom has an injured wrist so he gets a bit of help. 
 At one point Brent had a fish on when a humpback whale surfaced near us.  There has been talk in the news recently about keeping a 100 metres distance from those animals, but this one didn't read the paper. I tried but couldn't get a shot of both of them together.  There are lots of herring around for whales and salmon.

come for a visit, come for a fish

 Bill and Bernie expected a visit from Eric and Linda , so what could be better than getting together for a day's fishing ?   Fresh salmon for dinner ?
