    I would like to see a good turn out this meeting. Please pass this around to your friends. Out of all the meetings this is probably the most important,so we can engage directly with all of you face to face.

    I can't stress enough how it important it is to get all the information, so it isn't a surprise after April.

    We also need your input on these issues are facing, and we can't do just do that on forum boards or in the shadows. In Nanaimo alone there are so many anglers impacted by these changes coming up, and it concerns us how many are just not taking it seriously.

    We will continue to broadcast over social media to advertise our meeting.

    Please show up and see you there!

    Should be there. While I think in grand schemes sfab has little influence. Saw first hand how going to meetings can make a difference this fall and putting ideas forward.

    Thanks everyone. For a Nanaimo meeting that was very well attended probably best I have seen there for a few years. We had 50 people in total. It is nice to see anglers showing up, and getting engaged again.

    We will post up notes as soon as we can.

    Yes we were . It went a little longer than expected, but I think we covered a lot of topics. Even talked about steelhead in the end.

    Just want to clear up something. There has been some inaccurate information circulating across the Vancouver Island Fishing, and Vancouver Island Hunting and Fishing Facebook pages. To repeat again "THERE HAS BEEN NO DECISION YET ON CHINOOK SALMON MEASURES". The SFAB along with others are negotiating with DFO right now. There is no 9 year moratorium on chinook fishing, and that was never mentioned at our meeting.

    We have put up our response yesterday on our Facebook page.
