This post is for my Dad, who unfortunately, has lost a couple of fishing buddies over the past few years (for clarity - nothing he did!! :)). He lives near Courtenay, has a great boat, loves the ocean and has been fishing and exploring the coast for 40 years. The perfect fishing buddy for him would know boats and be confident with charts etc. and have a sense of adventure. Dad is super capable but we don't like him to be out on his own - especially on the West Coast! Do you know anyone who would be excited about the opportunity to get out on the water, make a new friend, share stories and catch some fish in the process? Dad is turning 80 this year and all he wants for his birthday is a fishing buddy. Your ideas will be appreciated.

Go Fish BC has a buddy program, but their mandate is freshwater, but they might be able to help as a lot of VI anglers fish both salt and freshwater.

Well you know, I think its really SWEET of you to take the time to find your Dad a fishing partner for his birthday wish... I hope your able to hook him up with someone he can enjoy the rest of his fishing years with...as I am sure he misses his old fishing buddies very much... Its just a special thing to sit and share the fishing stories that I KNOW fishermen and fisherwomen enjoy so much.... I think your Dad has a very SPECIAL daughter! :thumbup: Good luck to you! :)

I was going to say, 'Why don't you go with him?', then I saw you live in Kamloops! Doh! Hope your dad finds a buddy.

Thanks, everyone, for your good wishes and ideas - you rock. I'll check out Go Fish BC also. And meanwhile, if you hear of anyone who would like to fish the Island (any age - my Dad is a cool guy), please put them onto this forum.

Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to read. And special thanks to those who have stepped up to offer their company. I'm sure Dad's already excited about getting out on the water with new friends. This forum is a great way to reach out to people with a common interest. Happy fishing days, everyone...!
