Hello, hello, anglers!

It’s early days and I can’t wait to tell you about all the great stuff we have in the works! Stay tuned, people. Spring is coming!
I had a wonderful conversation today with Mike Gass the manager of sportfishing development at the Freshwater Fisheries Society.
The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC (FFSBC) is a private non-profit organization dedicated to the enhancement and conservation of BC’s freshwater fish resources for the benefit of the public. The Society delivers the provincial fish stocking program to support sport fishing, offers a range of conservation services to protect wild fish, and promotes the importance of sport fishing and fish conservation to the public.
Each year, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC (FFSBC) stocks about 800 lakes and streams throughout BC. The Society also conducts research and development activities as well as promotion and marketing initiatives aimed at improving sport fishing in the province.
The funds raised at last year’s derby went right into the Learn to Ice Fish programs that were delivered to over 600 youth and their families. This is what the derby is all about, happy, healthy lifestyle that gets kids outside and involved in nature and the environment.

FFSBC Thank You Letter to PCM Memorial Derby
Your participation last year sent kids to camp where they could l
earn to manage their diabetes as well as brought the youth of BC to the sport of fishing we all love. By teaching kids to learn to appreciate nature we ensure that our province and its waters stay clean and beautiful for future generations. From all of the organizers here at the PCM Memorial Derby, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, and the Canadian Diabetes Association – THANK YOU!
Lets make this year even better! Call Jamie to register your spot! 604-807-3005
