Every July and August, hundreds of thousands of chinook salmon make their way through British Columbia's mighty
Fraser River to their natal streams for spawning. At the stretch between Chilliwack and Hope, a fishing technique known as barfishing is commonly used to catch these prized fish.

In this video series, Nick Basok and Chris Gadsden of the Fraser Valley Salmon Society explain the setups and techniques of barfishing. Nick Basok is a retired hatchery technician and currently a staff at the Chilliwack Dart and Tackle. Both Nick and Chris have many decades of fishing experience in the Fraser Valley.

In part three of this video series, a fish interrupted Nick's demonstration. Cameraman Rodney Hsu fought the fish. The do's and don'ts of fighting a large chinook salmon are demonstrated throughout the video.
