Fishing For Kids Update ~ Aug 28

September 21, 2012 | 1063 Views

The weather turned a little grey and wet for the final day of the tournament but not the spirit of the event or its competitors…

Manny Malhotra…the smile says it all for his first Haida Gwaii fishing expereince.

The morning bite was off with only a few fish being called in and nothing to rival Sean Salem’s 34 pound Tyee from the day before.

Was there going to be an afternoon bite?

A few fish started to get called in. Nicholas Siqueria the Champion Child managed to get his first ever Chinook pictured here with father Edmund.

Things were looking up and the fish started to get bigger…

Perry Dom and Laurence Gilman pose with a nice one before release.

Then with an hour to go in the tournament there was a call from veteran Clubhouse Guide Kenny Tsang from the fish bowl…they needed a weight boat. The radio went silent as the fleet awaited the results…

“Tournament Master we have a fish to report; Angler Mike Abbey, Location Fish Bowl, Length 42, girth 28, weight 41.6 pounds”

A NEW LEADER…

With an hour to go they knew the had the winner!

What a fish!

That night Mike gave back all of his winnings ($200,000.00) to the Canucks Autism Network as did all the other prize money winners…

Picutred here is Paulo, Laurence Gilman, Mike Gillis, Brian Grange, Nicholas & Edmund, Mike Abbey, Manny Malhotra and Dan Hamhuis.

Back in Vancouver, as the tournament winner Mike got up close and personal with Fin.

A quick shot with Willie, Manny and Danny…

and when it was all over the tournament raised 1 million dollars for CAN…

A spectacular event with a fantastic outcome that helps BC families and children dealing with Autism.

Pictured here is Fin, Nicholas, Edmund, WCFC President Brian Legge, CAN CEO Katy Harnandi and Canucks owner Paulo Aquilini.

Thanks to all the participants, sponsors, WCFC staff, supporters and volunteers that made this event such a success.
