    One of the women from Island Outfitters did a good one at the Victoria boat show. Not the way I do things but pretty impressive.

    Tom Davis is knowledgeable with bait...him and his dad supplied the coast with bait for decades. Tom did a lot of fishing around Sidney with tiny strip but in recent years has spent most of his time around Sooke fishing anchovies and herring. It was very cool to go to their shop when it was located in Sidney by the family home and watch the very long term lady employees cut strip. Unbelievably fast and precise and all cut and packaged by hand. Rhys was always wanting to impress you with his sharp knives...would run the blade up your arm and shave all the hair off smooth.

    Tom is Rhys’ son? That’s worth a handshake! I live in Sidney now, that would’ve been cool to see the bait shop.
    Enjoy the show to all who can make it!
