Reel Obsession is a BC fishing lodge uniquely located in the migration path of the Pacific salmon, featuring career guides steeped in the local fishery, consistent big catches and world-class service and accommodation.
The scream of the reel as the broad shouldered king salmon took another run was music to my ears. The single action reel handles spun dangerously around as I got my hand out of the way just in time. They don’t call them knuckle busters for nothing and I had learned that painful lesson earlier in the day. That said, it was a lesson gladly accepted because it meant the fishing action was hot – and indeed it was. Our boat’s fish hold was steadily filling up with the bounty of the ocean in this remote location off Zeballos, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

Our guides were Troy and Talon. We caught so much fish the first day we couldn't close the lid on the holding tank in the boat. This might have been due to the 40lb spring and the 66 lb halibut that were in there! That's correct - 40lb spring!! Two of the guys had never fished the ocean before and after this day of fishing said if they never caught another fish in their lives they were okay with that. Adrian you got them both "hooked". One of our guys had fished the area for 20 years and now wants to move his annual trip to Reel Obsession.
