What’s New Wednesday, New Course Dates

Pacific Angler has just posted two new dates for our two most popular courses, Introduction to Fly Fishing & Master Local Saltwater Salmon Fishing.

If fly fishing is on your bucket list this summer, then this is the time of year to do it.  The lake fishing is just starting and we have the entire summer ahead of us.  The Introduction To Fly Fishing course is the perfect way to get started in this life long adventure.

The most popular course in our line up, Master Local Saltwater Salmon Fishing, is a must for any saltwater enthusiast in local Vancouver.  Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced rod you will gain valuable knowledge that just can’t be learned elsewhere…that is unless you’ve put in thousands of hours on the water like Mr. Jason Tonelli…your instructor for the night.

Please read below for our new dates.  Space is limited so call Pacific Angler today at 604-872-2204 to book your spot.


This course is designed to give the new fly fisher the basic knowledge, casting skills and fly fishing strategies to effectively fish our local waters. This course is comprised of two sessions: a 3hr evening seminar and a 3hr casting session.

Cost: $100.00 (before taxes)

Date(s): May 2 (theory) & 6 (casting)


Over 50 million salmon migrate past Vancouver annually.  Learn how to catch these fish with Pacific Angler. This course offers an in-depth look at the local saltwater scene. We cover the local saltwater salmon fishing for the entire year, showing you the how, when, and where. The course includes a 3hr evening seminar and a full guided day on the water in our 27ft Grady White.

Cost: $225.00 (before taxes)
