Whether the weather is fine or foul, some people just can’t get the thought of fishing out of their mind.
Rich Ronyecz of the Castaways Fly Fishing Club in Qualicum Beach knows that, so he’s expecting a good turnout when the club offers a special presentation at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre on January 17.
The club has asked steelhead expert Bob Hooton to present a talk on the history of what is undoubtedly one of the holy grails of sports fishing.
“He was a fisheries biologist for the ministry of environment for 30 years and he just recently retired,” he said. “He wrote a book called Skeena Steelhead, which has all the facts and stories about Skeena steelhead.”
The doors for this free event open at 7 p.m., with the talk kicking off at 7:30.
