Pink Salmon 101

Pink Salmon 101

Pink Salmon (Beach and River) 101

Pink Salmon 101 is an educational course designed for anglers of all abilities looking to target pinks on the fly on both beaches and up rivers.

Pinks are one of the most anticipated fisheries Van Isle offers. With easy access to casting off the beaches or up a river, they are great for high number days. In this class we will provide a wide variety of information that will help you become an educated angler, helping you catch more fish on your travels. 

In this class you can expect to learn the following information:

Species Identification

Biology/Life Cycle

Vancouver Island range

History

Location habitat (river, lake)

Food sources

Timing of species in certain waters

Rod, reel and line selection, wader choices and salt water care techniques

Fly selection and retrieval techniques

Conservation

This class is full of information and truly too much to cover in one night. The class will be broken down into:

Wednesday Aug 9th 6:30pm: Fly tying night, $75, all materials supplied

Friday Aug 11th 6:30pm: In house (free) information night, with an experienced local angler

Saturday Aug 12th: Fish Out! Fishing the beach in the early morning with our guide, and then moving to a river later on*. We suggest having a casting lesson before this class (if needed) so you can fully enjoy the educational info offered. $150

Book both the tie night and fish out day together, and save $25 dollars, that makes tie night and fish out $200 before taxes!

Only 6 spots available, call the shop at 2507924774 to reserve your seat, or email us at cumberlandflyshop@gmail.com

*a valid tidal and non-tidal fishing license is required for fish out. No License No Fishing No Exceptions!

Youth Fly Fishing Club

Thursday Nights 6:30-8:30pm Weekly 

Our Goal with a fly fishing youth group is to provide an activity for youth that will build skills to take out on their own, build relationships with other like minded youth and learn life skills.  In this group we will learn not only fly fishing skills but how to be conservation minded and respect our surroundings. 

Subjects to be taught throughout the year;

  • Bug Anatomy 
  • Fly Tying 
  • Fly Casting
  • Boat Safety 
  • Fish Handling 
  • Rules and Regulations
  • Species Identification
  • Life Cycle of Salmon
  • Life Cycle of Trout

 During the school year we will be hosting a series of fly tying nights, casting lessons, bug anatomy, boat safety and much more for the youth in the Comox Valley.  Each night we will be focusing on building the skills of the youth so they are able to tie a fly take it to a lake, river or beach and use their new found skills to catch fish and enjoy the outdoors.

During the winter months we will be focused on "filling our fly boxes" in preparation for some outings to local lakes and river come spring time. Come June we plan to host a two day group camping trip with the help of parents and Volunteers for some world class trout fishing using all the skills gained through the season. 

Ages 10-17
