BC Public Salmon Fishery Feeling the Heat

Tom Davis began salmon fishing along BC’s coast before he started elementary school, and has fished salmon as a recreational angler for the past six decades. From owning and operating a successful fishing tackle company, to advising all manner of governments on the state of Canada’s west coast public salmon fishery, there’s little Tom hasn’t witnessed. And, after all that, he’s still not walking away from salmon.
