Fishing guide shares secrets

To catch a fish, you need to think like a fish.

That’s how the old saying goes and Larry Stefanyk knows a thing or two about fishing.

Stefanyk, founding publisher of Island Fisherman magazine and author of Ultimate Trout Fishing in the Pacific Northwest, will be signing guidebooks and talking all things fish during a presentation at Costco Saturday (June 4), 1-3 p.m.

In his latest book, Ultimate Trout Fishing, not only instructs readers on how to think like a fish, but more specifically like a local trout.

Trout fishing is relatively easy to get started, as licences are inexpensive, good equipment can be found in all price ranges and trout are plentiful in saltwater, brackish estuaries, lakes of every size, small streams and large, fast-flowing rivers.

No need for an expensive boat, either – trout can be fished from shore, by casting from a small boat or trolling in a float tube.

With contributions from expert anglers and guides, Ultimate Trout Fishing is a comprehensive look at all aspects of trout sport fishing in this region and is full of practical advice and interesting tidbits.

Ultimate Trout Fishing is Stefanyk’s fourth book, having collaborated on Island Fly Fisherman, Island Halibut Fisherman and Island Salmon Fisherman.
