Fishing schools with a feminine twist reeling women into the sport
When April Vokey was a girl, her dad would sometimes take her out on a lake with a worm on a hook but he was far from an avid fisherman.
At 16, on a whim really, she decided to give salmon fishing a try. She packed up her little trout spinning rod and headed for the Chilliwack River.
It wasn’t exactly a scene from “A River Runs Through It,” since she broke her rod, lost the fish and went home empty-handed, but she was hooked – even if the fish wasn’t.
