Sonny Covin has been salmon guiding since the mid 1970’s while in Campbell River, British Columbia when not flying water bombers for the
Flying Fireman, in Sydney BC.
During his time fishing in British Columbia Sonny guided in the Tahsis area as well as in the Bamfield waters going up to 26 miles off shore
with his 17 foot Boston Whaler in the shipping lanes to catch some of BC’s spring salmon, ling cod and big halibut. When not flying, Sonny
taught for two years at Portage Collage in Lac La Biche, Alberta and would take other teachers to salmon fish on the BC coast so they could
experience salmon fishing at its best with great success.
In the last six years, he has been fishing the Prince Rupert waters in his 24 foot aluminum cabin cruiser the “Sonny Buoy” from July to
September and enjoying the company of Flying Fireman pilots and their families as well as his family and friends from his current town
of Leduc, Alberta.
Having over thirty years of west coast fishing under his belt, Sonny Covin brings a volume of fishing experience to the pro table. His
“sonnysfishingfriends.ca” website will certainly show his love of salmon fishing and how prolific a fisherman he is.
