This event is taking place during our best time of year for fishing. Visiting anglers can fish for wild Steelhead and chrome bright Chinook as well as Bull Trout, Rainbows and Cutthroat in a variety of local lakes and rivers. There are some good deals on hotel accomodations at this time. The demo day and BBQ are completely free and I am happy to hook any forum members up with a ticket to Saturday nights party for $5.Here is the poster for the movie premier party:

Hmmm... very tempting!

I haven't visited with our sponsor in beautiful British Columbia in a dogs age. Hmmm... frequent flyer miles might do it :smokin:

I can tell you first hand that besides the fishing the extra curiculars with the Whistler gang are first rate! Prepare to have a wild time in more ways than one in this most gorgeous part of the world.

Ther DVD's have been available for quite some time. Check your local shop and if they don't have one I would be happy to send you one mail order. The movie that we will be showing is actually a very short version of the selling copy that includes never before seen footage of Iceland and New Zealand.
