The Outpost Fishing Reports

The Outpost Report: March 15, 2010

March 15, 2010 | 1435 Views

OUTPOST UPDATE: THE BLOG IS BACK… I’ll be posting again ever Monday until the start of the season where I’ll be posting daily. I can’t tell you how exciting it was to be in Vancouver during the Olympics. The city and nation was alive with a renewed national pride.


After the gold medal Hockey game the downtown core was plugged with people celebrating, it reminded me of the images of ticker tape parades after WW2

Here at the WCFC we took part in our own way by positioning NIL downtown and providing accommodations for one of the largest Olympic sponsors. In the photo below the Olympic torch passes in front of NIL on the way to lighting the cauldron…

Hats off to Todd McIntyre and his crew who managed to pull off the move without a hitch. For those of us lucky enough to take in some of the events… it was a once in a lifetime experience. Here are WCFC’s Jen and Nycole taking in some Nordic events at whistler…

Early one Olympic morning I helped a group picketing the Today Show to try and raise awareness for global warming…here we are in Bob Sled costumes with Jimmy Fallon who was one of the morning guests…

I’ve also been inspired by the Norwegian men’s curling uniform and trying to source guest floater suits with the same pattern…

I think that would be a lovely look on the waters of the North Pacific.

Even with the Paralympics still underway Vancouver seems to be getting back to work and as of today the fishing season is only 86 days away. Outpost Bookings are looking strong and we’ve only got one date still available for exculisives; July 26-30. So give us a call if you want to snap it up and enjoy some good fishing with a dozen of your best friends.

I’ve got a few more photos from my February fly fishing trip to
New Zealand
To catch a fish in NZ you need to see them, can you find the fish in this photo?

How about in this photo?

The rivers vary in clarity but most are crystal clear like this spring creek on the west coast of the south Island making spotting fish pretty straight forward once you’ve developed an eye for it.

Once spotted you’ve got to be very strategic in your approach and at times be able to cast long distances with total accuracy. It’s quite intense and when it all comes together the fight is on…

Here’s a nice fish getting ready for the net…

The fish were of exceptional quality, Kaili is holding this 6lb rainbow, one of the nicest I’ve ever seen…

Below is a monster 9lb brown posing beside my boots after release. I hope to find him around 11lbs next year.

I can resist another shot of the biggest fish I caught on the trip and a memory that will last for a litfetime…

I hope you’re planning on joining  us this summer for a chance at some memorable catches. Thats it for this week, as usual stay tuned every Monday for all the fun and feel free to send your own stories and photos to kenbeatty@westcoastfishingclub.com.
