"My heart jumps when I think about standing in a beautiful river in the middle of an untouched wilderness and swinging a pink intruder for steelhead. Fishing British Columbia is magic - and we do it during prime time! A dream comes true and I can't wait to visit BC and fish the Bell Irving with you in October 2019!" (Philip)
Everything about swinging flies with a double-handed rod – from the constant awareness of how the river flows, the casting and the focus on controlling the line to making the fly pass through the lie at the perfect speed – feels amazing. And once a big fish hits your fly and you feel the sudden tug and weight – it’s simply magical! It’s a moment that is nearly impossible to describe: A special feeling that makes you crave for more. You just have to go again – and again, and again!
For centuries, European anglers have swung their flies across northern rivers. Unfortunately, the population of Atlantic salmon in Europe has dramatically diminished. This has led many salmon fishermen to cross the Atlantic in search for steelhead. British Columbia is heaven on earth for any Steelhead fisherman. The scenery there is just stunning: The golden colours during autumn and the snow-capped mountains – it’s not just something that exists on postcards. It’s there in real life as well.
In BC it is possible to find rivers that still live up to their full carrying capacity of wild steelhead. Think about that for a minute: It means that the natural maximum stock of steelhead is present in many rivers! It means that you can find steelhead where they are supposed to be – and that is a really attractive starting point for both skilled and novice steelheaders.
The Getaway steelhead fishing is not about numbers, it is about the overall experience. That being said, the operation had less than 1% of clients returning from BC without catching a steelhead. This is partly due to the potential of the fishing and partly due to the fact that Getaway have spent years getting access to the right rivers at the right time.
