Learn to Fish and Enter to Win from Yamaha

Yamaha 6 Four Stroke

July 12, 2016

Yamaha Motor Canada has signed on as the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC’s newest Learn to Fish sponsor. Each year, the Society teaches 25,000 youth and their families across BC when, where and how to fish responsibly. Thanks to the generous support of our Learn to Fish partners, including the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, Columbia Basin Trust, BC Ram dealers, Rapala, Teck Highland Valley Copper, and now Yamaha, we’re helping to grow a new generation of anglers.

To celebrate the partnership, Yamaha will award one lucky angler with a 6HP 4 Stroke Outboard. Everyone who participates in a Learn to Fish program, until the end of September, can enter to win. Full contest rules can be found here.

The Freshwater Fisheries Society is also very thankful to Yamaha Motor Canada for supporting our fisheries research program. Yamaha has generously provided two new motors, free of charge, to replace motors stolen from our research boats this spring.

Learn to Fish programs are held at BC Parks and regional and municipal parks throughout the province. We also host programs at our on-site ponds located at the Kootenay and Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitor Centres. To find a program near you, visit the Events page at www.gofishbc.com.

To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
