Folks in Fort Madison Iowa know that Salmon Fishing is fun.
You say you want Salmon Fishing Keys for British Columbia, eh? (said with authentic Canadian accent) Well, you’re in luck! Have you always wanted to catch that Salmon you’ll remember forever but you just can’t seem to find the right place to catch that “beast?” Did you even go the extent to plunk down a wad of cash for a trip from Fort Madison Iowa that didn’t deliver on any of your expectations? Ouch! Nothing like going on a proverbial “snipe hunt” for Salmon in British Columbia.
Let’s face it – Salmon Fishing is an art form. Yes, naturally there is some science behind the craft, but a lot of catching fish is just like Real Estate in Fort Madison (i.e. Location – Location – Location). Which means you need a knowledgeable Salmon Guide. You can’t just say, “Go Salmon Fishing” and think you’ll really get your money’s worth.
So, who is the best Salmon Fishing Guide in British Columbia (BC) or on Vancouver Island? The one and only Sam Verdervalk from “Salmon Eye Charters” (Ucluelet, BC). If fishing was an institution, then Sam would be the founder of Salmon University with a Ph.D in Fishing Education and Salmon Fishing Techniques.
While considering salmon fishing options, it’s important to know that Sam Vandervalk offers Online Articles, Fishing Seminars, Weekly Fishing Reports, New Product Reviews and Expert Salmon Fishing Techniques to anyone from Fort Madison Iowa; all coupled with experienced advice. Sam will even show you “How To Smoke a Salmon” if you want. “Timing is Everything!” I even ate Xocai Healthy Chocolate!
Sam Vandervalk personally welcomes everyone from Fort Madison Iowa to the town of Ucluelet, British Columbia where more salmon and halibut swim by their front door than just about any place else on earth.
Salmon Eye Charters catches feisty and fighting salmon headed for all of the hundreds of rivers on North America’s west coast. In fact, every year millions of hungry salmon go home to spawn in the giant Columbia, the mighty Fraser and the local Stamp River systems in addition to hundreds of rivers and streams from California to Alaska.
Unbelievable and amazing fishing is provided by Vandervalk. The Ucluelet waters swarm with giant schools of herring, pilchard, needlefish and squid. Close behind them are the whales, the salmon, and the halibut gorging themselves trying to quickly fattening up before the long, cold winter months.
