With Christmas just around the corner there is no better gift to give than the gift of fishing. As they say, “buy a man/women a fish feed him/her for a day, teach a man/women how to fish and feed him/her for a lifetime”. You can sign up your loved one for one of our unique fishing courses or simply buy them a gift card for the amount of the course so they can pick their preferred course.

For the months of December and January our specialized courses are focussed on steelhead. As well, due to popular demand Pacific Angler has opened up another date for Fly Fishing Egg Patterns.
