Fishing For Kids Update ~ Aug 28 "So it begins"

August 28, 2011 | 1069 Views

Hello from the Clubhouse and the 2011 Fishing For Kids Tournament hosted by the West Coast Fishing Club with all proceeds going towards the BC Children’s Hospital and the Canucks Autism Network (CAN).

The event kicked off last night at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver. Here’s a shot of the “most livable city” in the world from the hotel’s Presidential suite…

…where a reception was held before heading up to the Clubhouse this morning.

After the usual malay of helicopters and planes everyone was on Langara and Terry was giving the welcoming speech to the participants, owners and sponsors in the Clubhouse dining room…

After which was a non-tournament “free fishing” afternoon and everyone took advantage of the opportunity to get out on the water and “warm up”…

The fishing has been excellent this summer and today was no different. Guest and participant Jim Harrison hoists a nice take home Chinook. The tournament itself will be strictly catch and release.  There were the usual signs of success on the water…

Perry Domm and Jamie Walker share a moment with guide Matt.

Canucks player Dan Hamhuis bends a rod as he gets initiated to salmon fishing in Haida Gwaii…

There was a monster caught and released this afternoon, a 41 for Darren Francis, guide Bryce revives the giant…

Tomorrow that would be a contender for the $150,000 grand prize.

back at the dock it was smiles in the aslies with Senator Larry Campbell headed to the scale to “weigh in” on a few “things”…

The Champion Child Griffin poses with his father Alex and Dan…an exciting experience for them…

All the heavy hitters are here this weekend, Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis puts on his game face for tomorrows event…

He fished with WCFC owner Brian Legge today and at dinner tonight was encouraged by Larry Campbell to run for the Senate…the crowd went wild.

Dinner tonight was put together by renown Vancouver Chef (and angler) David Hawksworth of the Hawksworth restaurant in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia…

Senator Larry mc’d the proceedings as the Charities were introduced and guide allocation was drawn…

There was some concern over the competency of our aforementioned senate member but other than that the 6th annual Fishing For Kids Tournament is off to a great start.

Stay tuned for daily updates.
