About Fishing Buddies

As a Fishing Buddy, share your knowledge and passion for the sport you love by taking a neighbour, colleague, friend or relative out fishing.

Simply make a promise to introduce a new or lapsed angler to freshwater fishing every year.

On average, Fishing Buddies have each introduced three new people to fishing each year. We are grateful for your assistance in keeping recreational fishing in BC alive and well.

For help introducing someone new to fishing:

  • Sign up for our e-newsletter (at the bottom of this page) for stocking reports, angling tips from the experts and updates on all of our programs.
