Our August 27 – 31 guests were literally reeling & a rocking with gale force winds but the Bloxam Exclusive Group pit their very natures against awesome forces and reaped the rewards. Howard Blozam’s 47 lb Spring inspired everyone to seek and slay the elusive Tyee. Ian Robertson, 41 lb Spring, Jim Lambright, 33 lb Spring, Robbie Robertson, 31.5 lb Spring, William Latreille, 31 & 33 lb Springs and Dave Hall, 30 lb Spring received Tyee pins for their outstanding effort. Jim Bloxam’s 14 lb Coho earned him top honors in that category. Young Patrick and Taylor Baikie received special Junior Tyee pins for their bravery against the elements and passion for sport fishing. All in all it was a fun filled adventure for everyone as the magic of Langara never ceases to amaze anyone!
“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, I say…..it’s all right” and that is exactly what our August 31 – September 3 guests were singing when they got out of the helicopter. Welcome to September in the Charlottes. Salmon fishing has been sporadic but the McQuarrie, Brazinha, Bagliolid, N.E.T., Szwez and Sevadjian guests still managed to catch a total of 49 Chinook, 24 Coho, 48 Halibut and a variety of rock fish. Mike Kendler, 41 lb Spring and Wade Winkler, 31 lb Spring were awarded Tyee pins. Perry Armitage entertained everyone with his guitar playing and all agreed there is no better place to spend a relaxing weekend away from work!
