MeetYour Hosts

Captain & Rapala Certified GuideWADE DAYLEY

Wade has had a passion for fishing his entire life. Growing up in Port Hardy, he’s spent over 25 years fishing in and around Port Hardy. Wade knows where the fish go and how to catch them. This level of knowledge can only be gained from spending tireless hours on the water searching for new spots and testing different gear.

One of the things Wade enjoys most about guiding is handing over the rod to his guests to watch their excitement as the battle ensues. Whether it’s an arm numbing Halibut or a reel screaming Salmon, Wade’s guests always return to the dock tired and happy. See some of Wade’s adventures: #wickedsalmon
