When you go on a world-class fishing charter you should expect highly experienced guides that know the best fishing spots like the back of their hand. Fishing is one thing, but guiding is another. Our guides have grown up or guided in the area for a minimum of 10 years. Many big BC lodges have a few good guides and the rest are hired each year to fill positions. This does not mean that they know the area, or have any significant experience guiding. If you are lucky enough to get one of the good ones; great! At Reel Obsession our friendly team of professionals will show you a fun, safe and fish filled charter every time. All our guides are industry certified by Transport Canada and meet or exceed all requirements.
From the time I could hold a rod I was in the boat or on the shore with my dad. My passion for the sport was definitely handed down. Like I said, it's been imprinted in me from a very young age. I now spend almost 200 days a year with rod in hand, mostly work and of course some play. My uncle invited me to Zeballos 16 years ago and it has been my home every summer since; that's how my career started. Now it's my turn to pass the rod over to my father, son, or guest!
Aaron is born and raised on the island. His passion stemmed from a young age as he grew up fishing our local waters. Aaron [aka: Lips] loves to talk fish... but its not all talk; this guy knows how to produce. He’s an avid year-round island fisherman and spends over 200 days a year plying our local waters.
Kashes has been fishing his whole life. He started fishing on the river when he was 6, then running his own boat on the ocean when he was 12. He has always been obsessed with fishing. He started in the industry as a dock boy when he was 14 years old and got his first guiding job when he was 17 - and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon! His fishing experience is sure to fill the boat with fish and your head with crazy fishing stories. Guiding isn’t just his job its his passion.
Kyle has had a passion for fishing since he was a young boy. He has fished professionally for 20+ years. His dad bestowed the love of fishing onto him at the age of 9 out on the beautiful west coast waters of Haida Gwaii. Kyle enjoys seeing his guests have a lot of fun and showing them an experience of a life time.
For world-class guided fishing trips, please give me a call anytime to chat about your next west coast fishing adventure!
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.
