This past year I received a call from a woman wishing to give her husband a unique birthday gift, a fishing trip. When I mentioned the cost, she was a little apprehensive. She went on to suggest that there were many other gifts she could give her husband for that price. “Yes” I said, “but the memory or novelty of material gifts soon fade where as a gift of an experience lasts a life time.” She went ahead and booked the trip and wasn’t disappointed. The first fish landed by her husband that morning was a 21lb Chinook. Sometime later, I received an email saying he hasn’t stopped talking about it. And, he probably never will.
Whether it be gleaming snow-capped mountains viewed from the boat on a bright blue morning, a group of humpback whales curiously swimming over to say hello, the sun breaking through the early morning mist on our way out to the fishing bank or the violent throbbing of a rod tip after a large Chinook salmon takes the line amid shouts “fish on”, at Reel Time Fishing Charters, we do our best to provide experiences or memories that last a life time.
This Christmas, consider a gift that keeps on giving, a Vancouver Island Fishing trip with Reel Time Fishing Charters.
