I hope that you will enjoy my conversation and photos and most of all I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully one day have the pleasure of taking you on a guided fishing experience that you will never forget. It would be my absolute privilege to spend time with you and show you the beautiful part of the world that I have the pleasure to live and work in.
I think a few photos and captions would be a great way to start off.
This year we had the snowdrops flowers in the middle of February and then the snows came later, even in March.
The herring spawn in an enormous mass south of here on the Vancouver Island shore. That happens around the first week in March, and then the herring start moving out to spread out all over the coast. Although a few eagle pairs stay for the winter, most go south, and then come back for the herring. Today ( Mar 12 ) there was a flock of about 30 eagles swooping over the currents of Discovery Passage. There were probably more , but spread out further. Many people are surprised to learn that eagles congregate like this. They do if the food is concentrated. Seeing those eagles soaring marked the herring heading out to wherever they will spend their summer.
This anemone lives on the dock float right beside the stern of my boat at the Quadra dock. I think of it as a flower in spring, but it lives all year.
Spring means spring cleaning. Keeping up after the seagulls and the otters, both of which like to leave deposits on the boat, gets to be more frequent at this time of year. They often leave clues as to what they are eating
