Upcoming Member Adventuresby Rob Holman, May 02, 2017
Last June, Northwest Fishing Reports had the opportunity to invite members to join us as we fished and filmed with Reel Obsessions in the village of Zeballos on Vancouver Island, BC. Everyone had a great time and we produced 3 amazing adventure videos for our TV show and publishing online. We did it again for Tuna out of Ilwaco, Wa. Another great trip! This winter some members joined us with Reel Time Fishing for Steelhead on the Clearwater, and that was a blast! Members seem to like us putting these trips together on top fisheries with reputable guides that offer great experiences. The chance to be on TV and be part of the filming only adds to the fun for many.
As the TV show has aired, we’ve been offered all kinds of new adventures. Our idea for the show and the online videos is to cover trips that are doable for most people in the Northwest, and offer tips and tactics to that will make for successful outings. So we’re planning on focusing on a few quality trips each year. We want outings that work well with groups, but also offer a special value and element of adventure that is a bit out of the ordinary.
Northwest Fishing Reports has always been about our “members” and the chance to hang out with you, doing what we love, and doing some great fishing is what it’s all about. Check out past videos for more information on these guides and charters and past adventures we’ve had with them. Feel free to contact them directly with questions. Also, all adventures are booked DIRECT with the charter or lodge. Northwest Fishing Reports does not monetarily profit from these trips, we’re just sharing the opportunity! When booking, be sure to mention the
Northwest Fishing Reports Adventure for the special rates and packages below.
