Tommy Thomson

Tommy started guiding on the west coast of Vancouver Island and has spent the last seven years guiding in Haida Gwaii. He has come by his nickname, “Tommy Tyee” honestly. A big fish magnet that has released several chinook salmon over 70 pounds! One of those guys who seems to know where they live and has a cutplug that rolls just a little better than everyone else’s.

During the during the winter and fall months Tommy hosts and guides many of our steelhead trips. In the summer he is salmon guiding with Yos at Langara Island.

Easily one the friendliest, most enthusiastic and fishiest guys one would want to fish with, we’re lucky to have him on staff. When he’s not grinding out big days on the water Tommy likes to travel, surf and shred the steep-n-deep champagne powder on BC’s mountains.
