I love the fall for two reasons – the beautiful colours to photograph, and a few extra non-work weekends to spend with my husband 🙂 This past weekend was one I had been looking forward to for a while – we had booked a fishing trip with Port Alberni’s best fishing guide – Nick Hnennyj of West Coast River Charters. Shaun has had the pleasure of fishing with Nick for the last few years, but this was my very first ‘real’ fishing trip with him.
If you’re ever looking for that exciting BC Staycation, fishing in Port Alberni may just be the PERFECT thing. A quick ferry ride over to Vancouver Island, and you’re feeling like you’re a million miles away from the ordinary. The scenery was breathtaking on the Stamp River, and the wildlife was absolutely amazing. Who knew a fishing trip would be the perfect photo op for some beautiful BC black bears!!! I was in awe watching them heading down to the river for a quick feed on some coho!
