Video: Pow-Pow and Fly Fishing in Backcountry British Columbia in Skins & Fins

From Simms and director, Drew Stoecklein, comes “Skins & Fins: Adventures in Terrace, British Columbia.”

Terrace, B.C. is a mountain lover’s dream. A quiet town surrounded by massive mountains, thick forest, and a system of trout, steelhead, and salmon filled rivers (the Skeena System), there is simply more than enough “outdoors” to keep anyone occupied for a lifetime (without it getting old). When the snow hits, B.C. is a powder-rider’s dream and a day of play can involve both fly fishing and skiing/riding.

Much of this play is highlighted in a new video short, “Skins & Fins” from Simms and Drew Stoecklein.

More on this fly fishing destination:

British Columbia is the westernmost province of Canada and is treasured by outdoors enthusiasts for its natural beauty that feature both Pacific coastline and magnificent mountain ranges. British Columbia has massive rivers that access the Pacific Ocean and welcome anadromous fish that attract anglers from all over the globe. B.C. welcomes all five species of Pacific salmon, but perhaps the greatest draw for anglers are the steelhead that make their way into Western Canadian rivers. In addition to salmon and steelhead, B.C. has bull trout, dolly varden, and sea run cutthroat, among other freshwater species.

The rivers of British Columbia are large, and for this reason, float trips are an attractive option for many anglers. In addition, to cover water effectively, Spey and switch rods are go-to rods for many salmon and steelhead anglers in B.C.

British Columbia has many prized rivers, but some rivers of note include the Skeena and related tributaries such as the Sustut, Babine, Bulkley, and Zymoetz Rivers, as well as the Damdochax, Dean, Pitt, Nass, Bell Irving, Columbia, Morice, and the Fraser Rivers (to name a few).

B.C. also has wildlife that add an element to angling in Western Canada. Bald eagles, wolverines, moose, and grizzly bears bring anglers plenty to look for in the British Columbia wilderness.
