From the Canadian city of Victoria, the capital of Vancouver Island, Paul joins skipper Wayne Dealey to fish the rich northern pacific waters. Paul’s target species is Halibut (known locally as butts), giant flat fish that can strain the toughest of tackle and anglers often go weak at the knees with the sheer power of these overgrown Flounders. But surprise, surprise, the first catch of the day turns out to be a very unusual species a Ratfish which, as its name suggests, looks very much like a rodent. After 6 hours of quiet inactivity the action erupts as a halibut tears off with Paul’s herring bait and the fight is on and he lands a specimen Halibut of over 60 lbs. In part 2 Paul meets up with fishing guide Kensey Cuthbert to fish the tidal estuary of the River Renfrew in pursuit of Silver Salmon. Several Salmon are successfully hooked but the estuary seals are not slow in taking advantage of handicapped salmon and to Paul’s utter disbelief they make off with his fish before it can be landed. Finally Paul gets one to the boat, a beautiful silver that is steered rapidly but safely into the landing net!
