From the tranquil waters of Powell Lake to the vast expanse of Desolation Sound, Drew Dodsworth's love affair with fishing began at a young age. Introduced to the art by his beloved grandpa Bill, affectionately known as "Bumpa," Drew's earliest memories revolve around early morning wake-ups and trolling adventures for rainbow and kokanee trout. These cherished moments laid the foundation for a lifelong passion for angling.
-
The allure of trolling, with its serene moments interrupted by the sudden thrill of a powerful strike, captured Drew's heart from the beginning. It's a journey that takes one from the peacefulness of the lake to the adrenaline-pumping excitement of reeling in a massive catch, the intensity escalating from zero to a hundred in an instant.
-
Drew's preferred target on these angling expeditions is the majestic Chinook salmon, a species that holds a special place in his heart. Yet, he's no stranger to the exhilarating challenge of hauling in a large bucket head. His love for the sport extends beyond the catch itself, embracing the entire experience of being out on the water.
-
Powell River, with its diverse and rich fishing grounds, has become Drew's playground of choice. From Grants Reef to Harwood Island, and from Desolation Sound to Toba Inlet and Waddington Channel, each location holds a unique charm and a promise of adventure.
-
In his pursuit of the perfect catch, Drew relies on his trusted Gibbs tackle. The Gibbs Skinny G Spring Roll Spoon, with a 7 ft leader, holds a special place in his arsenal. A preference for a purple teaser head combined with a Purple Haze flasher or a Big Shooter Green flasher with a Bon Chovy Skinny G reveals Drew's dedication to precision in his pursuit. And let's not forget the 8 oz Nickel Black Jumbo Anchovy Jig, a tool of choice for those moments when only the biggest and boldest will do.
-
Adding to the richness of Drew's angling story is his collaboration with Gibbs Pro Team member James Forsyth. As a guide under Jimmy Jack Charters in Powell River, Drew not only embraces his passion but also shares his expertise with fellow enthusiasts, creating lasting memories for those who seek the thrill of the catch under his guidance.
-
As Drew continues his angling journey, his biography is a testament to the deep connection between a person and the waters they navigate. It's a story of early morning tranquility, the thrill of the catch, and a lifelong love for the art of fishing.
