The Line Is Drawn in the Gravel: When It Comes to Industry, Choose Carefully

Article by Amanda Follett Hosgood

We all know that industry is part of living in northern BC: logging trucks roll past on the highways, trains carrying cargo rumble through our communities, and thousands of tourists visit every year in airplanes and RVs. Even the fishing industry contributes to the clatter with motorized river access and fly-in camps. All that said, these are our jobs and livelihoods and what makes life in the north possible.  

But we believe,...

Big Pine with Shallow Phins

When you head out to fly fish the ocean you are completely at the mercy of the weather.  Since we live and die by the weather for steelhead we certainly understand our trip was going to be a roll of the dice. 

Luckily for us the storms parted and we were able to hit a perfect weather window for tarpon fishing. We also lucked out by surprisingly catching a may long weekend worm hatch.  Prepared for the worst we lucked out on all fronts. Here is a photo blog of some of the highlights of...

Spring in Review

Normally when our winter steelhead program in Haida Gwaii shuts down we get some free time to catch up on things, but this year one program rolled right into the next.  We worked with guide/outfitter Nomads of the North in Terrace BC and longtime friend Mike VanWormer (AKA VDubs).  As usual he produced incredible trips for guests lucky enough to go.  The April spring fishery worked out perfectly for us.  

Going on at the same time as this was our Kings of Spring program targeting one...

Telly's Grill

When you walk into Telly's Grill, you can already get a sense of what this restaurant will look like once it is fully completed.  At first glance, you notice the details on the ceiling.

Straps that have gone through a kiln are placed creatively on the ceiling and wall.  Giving a modern but homey feel, the restaurant reflects an inviting feeling, allowing you to feel like everyone is welcome. And that is exactly what owner and chef Peter Karnouskos wants.
