25% of our top winners were women and 37% of the people entered in this year’s derby were women or under the age of 20 yrs. Those statistics really give the message as to how fishing in Tahsis has turned into a family event and holiday.
The vast majority of the fishing occurred on the highway between the mouth of Esperanza inlet and Kyuquot. Both days were calm but day 2 (Sat Aug 25) was absolutely flat.
Congratulations to all the winners. Over 200 people showed up for the awards banquet Saturday at the Community Rec Centre. Everybody left with at least one prize and full bellies.
The Tahsis Lion’s Club and Salmon Enhancement Volunteers served up grilled chicken and deep fried halibut with all the fixings. Great Job!!!
$27,185.80 - WOW!
That’s the grand total raised from 2012. That is a 29.3% increase over last year.
That brings the total funds raised over the last 9 derbies to $128,930.95!
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FISH!
