Fly Fishing in Canada

Just thought I would put a short report in. We (Chris,Liam and myself with our ladies) are traveling through Canada and the West Coast of the USA for a few weeks. We are mainly touring but when we can we will be flyfishing. So far our first chance has been at Vancouver Island and Elk Lake. Just an easy 1 hour fish to get the muscles working! We fished a beach area and had probably one hit. But it was good to open up the gear and try the new stuff. Just to give you an idea of what we had on, I had wading boots and neoprane socks with jeans and rain proof outer pants. I had a long sleeved shirt and full Columbia inner and outer jackets. Plus gloves! The fish running at the moment are mainly trout with a few left over salmon. It is a quiet time of the year as the salmon are finishing and the trout have not really started. We are all fishing either a 5wt or 7 wt rods with floating lines and sink tips when we need them. We always use local flies so egg patterns, and small fish patterns are the choice, 2 to 3 kilo tippets are the go.
