Fly Fishing Film Tour vancouver. Thursday June 12th
« on: April 17, 2014, 11:34:31 AM »

Ladies and Gents, due to the success of the last show. I will be hosting the tour again.

This time the proceeds will benefit the Seymour Salmonid Soceity http://www.seymoursalmon.com/index.php and the Norman Rothstein Theatre.

Last year we were able to raise $2100.  So that was $1050 to the BC steelhead society and $1050 for the Norman Rothsetin theatre (non profit)


The date is June 12th.... right before fathers day.  The doors will open again at 7:00pm and show at 7:30pm The Norman Rothstein Theatre is located at 950 west 41st ave in vancouver.  easy access by skytrain via oakridge center.

Cold beer and wine as well as non alcoholic beverages will be available again this year. And who doesn't like enjoying a cold refreshing beer while watching fish porn in HD on a theatre sized screen.

The films are absolutely stunning. The cinemtography is top notch... The film on alaskan king salmon is pretty amazing and makes me miss home.

Tour website: http://flyfishingfilmtour.ca/  the films trailers are there.

The show will have the same price point $15 for adults and $10 for those under 16.  Tickets are available online. (already sold one too)
Online: https://www.ticketriver.com/event/10015



They will also be available at the door. I will be contacting our local shops again shortly.  They were all a tremendous help last year, and without their support shows like this are difficult to put on.  Thank you pacific angler, M&Y and Sea Run Fly and tackle.



The donations have been coming in now, and we are poised to give away a lot of great stuff again this year. 

Last years big item was a pontoon boat. and this year the Generous folks at Winston Rod Co http://www.winstonrods.com/ have donated a Boron III 9' 8wt rod.  This is the nicest single handed rod I have ever had in my hands.  Its been incredibly difficult looking at this thing while I take my ammundson out to the vedder.  It comes with a case and bag.

the rod.


Costa https://www.costadelmar.com/home has donated some wonderful sunglasses. Both in mens and womens. They are very nice. Includes case.

pics: mens


womens:


There will be a ton of shirts, and hats to give away as well.


Now the important part.

The Seymour Salmonid Society is a non-profit organization that is responsible for running the Seymour River Fish Hatchery and Education Centre. Our purpose is to enhance fish stocks and encourage proper management of fisheries in the Seymour River. We also aim to educate the public about the value of the Seymour River and the salmonids it supports as a resource for everyone living in British Columbia.

The proceeds of this show will be put to good use.  I had the opportunity to visit Kurt up at the hatchery and it's a great program. Especially this year with the hatchery's largest release of steelhead smolts. almost 50,000 released.

Come enjoy a great evening and support a worthy cause.  more to follow....... of course

http://www.seymoursalmon.com/whatwedo.php

The main purpose of the Seymour Hatchery is to enhance fish stocks in the Seymour River that have been cut off from their traditional spawning grounds by the construction of the Seymour Falls Dam. They collect adult fish and take their eggs and milt. The eggs are fertilized and then incubated until the alevins hatch. The alevins use up their yolk sac and turn into fry. When the fry turn into smolts they are released to go to the ocean.

Each year they raise the following:

30,000 steelhead smolts

120,000 coho. Of these, 40,000 fry are released into the reservoir above the dam, around 35,000 fry are released into habitat projects and approximately 45,000 are released as smolts

Around 1-1.2 million pink smolts every second year

100,000-600,000 chum smolts

They support other groups including hatcheries and schools with assistance in stewardship. They supply eyed eggs and supplementations to the 'salmon in the classroom' program run in North Shore schools.

Another directive of the Seymour Salmonid Society is habitat creation. Because the fish have lost most of their original spawning and rearing habitat to the dam, we have been active in the creation of new habitat by way of spawning channels and over-wintering water in the river below the dam. Over 40000 square metres has been created.

The society has developed an education program called 'Gently Down the Seymour'. It has been developed for elementary school students. This unique program combines outdoor hands-on experience with classroom research.


Here are some pictures from when I went to visit the hatchery.  What a beautiful river system, and so close to vancouver.
we truly are lucky to live in this province.

Here some steelhead smolts about to be fed.


Some coho as well.


And coho eggs

thanks g-ratt but I don't work there.  we share the same sentiments, the few that work and volunteer do a great job up there, especially with the limited resources.

I agree. I just got back from belize myself.... I did a tarpon day on the flats.  lost a nice 5 footer at the boat.  I've pulled some big chinook out of rivers in my day.  a lot between 40-45lbs.  but I have never felt anything as strong and explosive as a tarpon.  though I was going to snap the 10wt.

watching a tarpon chase your fly and explode on  the surface is a sight to see.  gave me the chills.

Tbh the film tour that got me the most was last years when a crew went fishing for golden dorado.

But I really liked Blood Knot from this year, but one more thing.

I find it interesting how Orvis isnt a sponsor, yet 90% of the films involve Orvis! -
