SNC Derby 2012 “ Two Dave’s Beat Down ”

June 13, 2012 | 815 Views

The Second and Last Annual SNC Invitational Shootout Salmon Tournament is now in the books and this fun event will return in 2013 under a new banner.  And yes, there is a story to it.  On the final day of last year’s inaugural event, fishing partners Dave Akins and Dave Bowyer heroically claimed victory only a few minutes before the closing bell rang with their winning chinook of 34.5 pounds.

This year, the highly skilled (and/or incredibly fortunate) duo smoked the competition again with an impressive pair of 41 pound tyee’s to claim first and second place.

Dave, Dave and guide Brent Maracle, were definitely in “the zone”.  For their efforts, they were rewarded with the Big Fish of the Day prize for Tuesday and Wednesday plus a shiny, gold Islander MR2 reel and a return trip for two this summer.  Not bad.

To their credit, both of these trophy fish were carefully released and WCFC is pleased to honour them with our 40+ catch and release award prizes.

For 2013, we have decided that the derby will be renamed the Two Dave’s Beat Down.  If you think you have what it takes to hand the boys a good old fashioned curb stomping, sign up, book your seats and bring it on!  They’re talking trash and they’re going for the three-peat.  Only you can stop them.  See you next year.  We might even get a trophy.
