Lets just say that there is a remote Skeena tributary where our longtime friend and outfitter Derek Botchford runs a really cool little camp that only eight guests get to fish a year. The camp is really comfortable, the days are really long and the fish are, on average, the largest of any the world’s fly-friendly king venues. Here we actually expect that all guests will catch several fish in the 40 pound class and that there will be fish north of 50 pounds landed as well. While the camp only runs for two weeks, most seasons, at least one of their guests will land a fish in the 60-65 pound class. Oh yeah, and we expect that guests will hook a fair number of bruisers each day! This is truly one of the most unique trophy spey venues in the world and these spaces don’t come around often. Proficiency with heavy sink tips is mandatory.
Guests stay in comfortable single-occupancy tents that are set on platforms. Cots, lighting, and sleeping bags are provided. Their camp has an on demand hot shower set up and meals will be excellent. This trip originates in Smithers and includes a charter float plane flight into this remote camp.
