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.

Most important of all, I can say our guide, Tallon, was amazing. He put us on the fish every day and adapted to weather, ocean and fishing conditions as they changed. He was friendly, good with people, and best of all had a great sense of humor. The three of us had a lot of good laughs, we felt very comfortable being in the boat with him. I had the opportunity of meeting all the other guides as well; they are all very friendly and experienced.
