They were looking for smuggled cul de ostrich canard

Tofino is primarily a saltchuck tyee and coastal flyfishing area for big hooknose coho. It's another primo western Vancouver island coastal area (like Ucluelet). I am not aware of the river angling, although I gotta believe it's great. Every time I've fished the pacific coast of Vancouver Island it's been toward shore from boats coming from the US Olympic coast. Many of my Boeing friends made regular pilgrimages to TOfino and Barkeley Sound, etc. They typically release any chinook under 25-30 pounds.

Even the seemingly insignificant Nitinat Lake inlet to the east has been a perennial hotspot for us. 30 pound tyee in 10-20 feet of water!

Along the coast, bright glacial cascades tumble from cliffs into the pounding surfline along pristine shores. Other than the clearcutting and timber devastation in the foothills, the place would be the very picture of wilderness in it's prime.

Sounds like a great expedition you had!
