Meet Fishing Expert Larry Stefanyk


Posted: April 29, 2008

Meet author and fishing expert Larry Stefanyk, co-author of the just-released Island Salmon Fisherman. Stefanyk will be signing copies of his new book at the grand opening celebrations for Tyee Marine’s new location, 870 Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay, on Saturday, May 3 from 1-3pm.

In writing Island Salmon Fisherman, experienced saltwater anglers Larry Stefanyk and Robert Jones tapped the expertise of over fifty professional fishing guides, resort operators, lure manufacturers and local highliners to compile the kind of knowledge that is usually gained only through years of on-the-water experience.

The greatest strength of Island Salmon Fisherman is that in addition to the latest in fishing techniques, it offers insider knowledge where the fish are to be found. In all, it documents 826 hotspots and important locations—each accompanied by GPS coordinates for easy reference on a marine chart or GPS device. Coverage runs down the west coast from Quatsino Sound to Victoria. East coast coverage includes waters around Port Hardy, Blackfish Sound, Sayward, Campbell River, Comox Valley, Qualicum, Parksville, Nanaimo, the Gulf Islands and Sidney. Each destination is covered in thorough detail, all lavishly supported with pictures, illustrations and maps.

Courtenay resident Robert H. Jones edits Island Fisherman magazine. Larry Stefanyk lives in Campbell River and is the founding publisher of Island Fisherman magazine. This is their third book with Harbour Publishing, having previously collaborated on Island Fly Fisherman and Island Halibut Fisherman.
