Dean “Deaner’ Werk of Great River Fishing and Trevor Carruthers of the WSSBC join Steve and Kyle for this episode. Dean and Trevor were catalysts for the formation of the Jurassic Classic. We discuss the how and why of its formation, how sheep and sturgeon come together, the aura of the event, how COVID has affected it and other fundraisers, and salmon on the Fraser.
“British Columbia’s Full Curl Fishing Experience”
The Jurassic Classic is an Annual “Fishing Experience” on the majestic Fraser River in beautiful Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. 28 professionally guided teams, consisting of 2 anglers each, will enjoy two full days of fun-filled fishing adventure and will be treated to first class hospitality, with all proceeds raised going to wild sheep projects in British Columbia. Various teams from across North American WSF Chapters and Affiliate clubs as well as several SCI and other wildlife conservation groups attend each year with the goal of friendly competition and collaboration about conservation issues.
Working under the umbrella of the Wild Sheep Foundation, the Wild Sheep Society (WSSBC) and the Guide Outfitter Association of BC (GOABC) have teamed up with Great River Fishing Adventures to bring you a world-class sturgeon fishing opportunity. This is an all inclusive weekend with 3 nights hotels, 2 days of full-day fishing, all meals, alcoholic beverages, and more included. We have a great BBQ on the shores of the Fraser River on the Saturday evening, and close the weekend off with an awards banquet and a live/silent auction fundraiser.
