We make fishing.......
Captain John is originally from Ireland and in fact toured all over the world for many years playing music with his dear friends The Irish Rovers .
As a young man he spent his summers in Donegal
fishing in Mulroy Bay or working on the Herring Boats from Killybegs. After a fishing trip to Campbell River in the early 80's the skipper decided to drop anchor and settle down to play music and fish right here. The fishing is great, the stories are true(well some of them might be) and the experience is a memory you will carry for a long time.

The Story of the Golden Salmon
Finegas was a poet and one of the wisest men in Ireland.He lived near the River Boyne where he would read books and write poetry. Try as he may, Finegas could never see the Salmon of Knowledge in the river,
it's skin was gold and it's eyes were magic a few tried to catch it, but all failed.
There was no school, so young men were trained as warriors and since Finegas was a wise man and poet, some would come to live with him and learn from him.
Fionn was one such student and his father Cumhall was a mighty warrior. Cumhall had trained under Finegas and knew one day Fionn would be warrior by his side.
One day by the river as Finegas was reading poetry, a huge powerful fish jumped high in the air, Finegas had never seen a fish of such proportion and rushed to find a strong net. Fionn who had his back to all the action had not seen the fish, Finegas knew if he looked into it's eyes he would fall into a deep sleep. Suddenly the great fish jumped again, high in the sky and the startled Finegas looked right into his eyes and fell to the ground in a deep deep.Fionn tried for hours to waken Finegas and eventually succeeded. Night was falling but Finegas was determined to catch the fish. He covered his eyes with a cloth and cast his heavy net into the river.
The moon climbed high in the sky ,but still the fish skulked below in the black water. A tiny ripple danced
across the inky water, chased by another larger ripple and then another and another and then..... nothing
Finegas relaxed again and as he turned a page his book the net groaned and twisted as the huge fish strained to break through,he rolled and tossed and turned but this time there was no escape.
Finegas was exhausted so he told Fionn to cook the fish, but warned him not to eat the fish, not even a mouthful.
Fionn built a fire and when it was ready he placed the fish over the fire, as he did so a little drop of oil dripped onto his thumb, Fionn licked the oil and thought no more about it. When the Salmon was cooked he brought it to Finegas but the wise man sensed that something was awry. Fionns cheeks were redder and his eyes were brighter.
"have you eaten of the salmon?"Finegas asked of Fionn
Fionn told him the truth."I did not eat any of the fish".
Finegas was still unhappy " have you even tasted the fish?".he asked
then Fionn rembered that he had burned his thumb and put it in his mouth. Finegas knew at once that Fionn had the wisdom of the salmon of knowledge.
At first he was very sad, he knew he woulds never be the wisest man in Ireland but he was happy that Fionn had received that gift.
Finegas knew the Fionn would be the greatest warrior that Fianna had ever known.........slainte
