SPORT & SPEAR Fish­ing in Tofino

Snowbirds & RV Travelers - - — British Columbia — -

WORDS AND PHO­TOS BY JAIME IVARS HE­WITT The fish­ing in Tofino is world class. Each year we have amaz­ing runs of large chi­nook and coho salmon, great hal­ibut spots, and ex­cep­tional ling­cod fish­ing. Oc­ca­sion­ally, you can throw your jig down and have a fish on be­fore it hits the bot­tom; it’s sur­real, very dif­fer­ent from what I’m used to in Spain.

I come from a small fish­ing vil­lage on the Mediter­ranean coast, where I grew up sail­ing, fish­ing and spearfish­ing. I’ve spent most of my life in or on the sea, study­ing fish­ing and marine trans­porta­tion in col­lege, where I learned how to op­er­ate large fish­ing ves­sels.
