Friday, July 4 to Sunday, July 6, 2014 Saltwater Classic Fishing Derby in Tofino – a 3-hour drive from Nanaimo, BC 

For five years now, the Tofino Saltwater Classic Fishing Derby has been luring passionate anglers from all over the world to participate in this worthwhile annual event that’s also a fundraising initiative for the Tofino Community.

Created by Brendan Morrison (member of the National Hockey League), the event is set to up the ante of fishing from merely a pastime to fishing for a good cause.

July 4 will be the check-in and the meet-and-greet. The derby will commence on July 5 and last for two whole days. Last year’s biggest winner caught a 27.6 lb fish that got the award-winner $4,000.
