From June 18-21, we held a terrific first annual VIP Fishing Derby to benefit Long Live the Kings and our Glenwood Springs Field Station at Nootka Marine Adventures’ Newton Cove Resort on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island. Participants competed for $25,000 in prize money over two full-days and two half-days of productive guided fishing in the ocean and nearshore waters surrounded by mountains, forests, and crystal clear waters. The experience included phenomenal wildlife viewing: bears, whales, porpoises, sharks, birds, and even ocean sunfish. While only two hours from central Puget Sound by float plane, it felt like a world away!
Special thanks to Nootka Marine Adventures for hosting this exceptional event at their fantastic Newton Cove Resort. Here is what some of this year’s participants had to say about Newton Cove Resort: “the food, accommodations, guides, and staff were all superb,” “the resort setting and location were spectacular–the wilderness coastline and fjords are unique and beautiful, wildlife abundant, and fishing very good,” “I’ve been to a lot of places on Vancouver Island and Newton Cove Resort is the best,” “sign me up for next year!”
Well, YOU can sign up now as we will be out again next year. Spots for the derby on June 22-25, 2017 are limited and filling fast. Contact Daniel at LLTK to make your arrangements now before it is too late!
