They say that good things come to those who bait.
With all of the amazing things happening this summer, a person could almost forget to mention the classic Vancouver Island event.
You know the one: Getting up in the dark, sitting patiently for hours and being rewarded with the ultimate prize. Sounds like waiting in line for festival tickets, but no. I'm talking about Island Fishing Derbies. After all, we DO live in one of the fishing capitals of the world.
But if the rod and reel aren't your thing and your idea of fish nets is the wearing kind...then you'll definitely want to check out the other derby that's taking the Island by storm: Roller Derby. It's competitive, colourful, and the upcoming season enders will have you thoroughly hooked.
