2008 Salmon University Trip with Oak Bay Marine Group to the Queen Charlotte Islands


A short pictorial of the Salmon University trip to Langara Island in the Queen Charlotte Islands.

On behalf of Salmon University, I would like to thank the Oak Bay Marine group and the outstanding crew of the Charlotte Princess for their efforts in making this trip such a great adventure. A special thanks goes out to the great anglers that came along with us. We hope to see you all again next year.
