Local Fishing Expert Signs Books in Campbell River!

Posted: Thursday, December 6, 2007

/covers/small/1550174002.jpgMeet local author and fishing authority Larry E. Stefanyk, who will be signing copies of his two books Island Halibut Fisherman (Harbour, $24.95) and Island Fly Fisherman (Harbour, $21.95) at Save-On-Foods in Campbell River, on Saturday, December 15, 2007 from 1-3pm.

Halibut fishing is steadily growing in popularity yet, until now, few books have been available on the subject. Expert anglers Robert H. Jones and Larry E. Stefanyk tell readers everything they need to know to land the big one and get the most from fishing the west coast of British Columbia in Island Halibut Fisherman.

The authors are experienced in all facets of halibut fishing and have drawn on the knowledge of professional Vancouver Island guides to provide invaluable “how to” and “where to” tips. Hundreds of photographs, illustrations and maps accompany topics such as halibut biology, tackle, bait, lures, tactics and processing.

With everything from small creeks, rivers and lakes to vast expanses of saltwater beaches and protected inshore waters, it’s easy to understand why Vancouver Island is considered an angler’s paradise. Island Fly Fisherman is a compact guide written by nine expert anglers. Compiled and edited by Jones and Stefanyk, it will provide everyone interested in fly fishing with solid information on where and when to go, and which tackle, tactics and fly patterns will produce the best results.

Courtenay resident Robert H. Jones edits Island Fisherman magazine. Larry E. Stefanyk lives in Campbell River, BC, and is the founding publisher of Island Fisherman magazine.
