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.

Cruelties of mother nature

We just finished up nearly two weeks of rare temperatures on Haida Gwaii. Just like Vancouver has been getting pummeled by unlikely snow storms, to our dismay, so have we. Our March fish are much like our guests from sunny California: they hate the cold.  When water temps edge toward 33 degrees, our fair-weathered ocean friends turn their noses up and push back out to seals-ville.

Haida Gwaii

Haida Gwaii is where we call home during the winter months, and anyone who has ever been here knows how incredibly special it is.  It is one of the truly unique destinations in Canada   that offers something for everyone to relate to.  Whether you choose to come in the summer, winter, for fishing or touring you will have a very memorable and wonderful experience.

Here is a photo blog of a day Chris George and I took exploring the coast.  It started off as one of those magical days but...

How to Consistently spot Steelhead

No, sorry, this isn’t a dissertation on my youth and its addictive lifestyle, nor is it about swimming into toilet bowls and/or breaking the law to get a fix.…

Actually, wait—maybe I could write a dissertation on some of that, at least as far as youth and addictions go.

Growing up on the Canyon Rivers of the North Vancouver, rivers dominated by deep pools and tail-outs, giant boulders and cliff faces, I found waters that fit my addiction to fishing like a glove, as they had my...
