Utilizing ethnographic and autoethnographic approaches this research explores the culture of recreational sport fishing around the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Grounded in the interpretivist paradigm, this research collected the stories of anglers who actively use the waters off the southern tip of Vancouver Island for recreational fishing--either directly or peripherally. Qualitative data were collected through interviews and observing the individuals and groups using these waters. A narrative analysis of the research findings, based on the stories of the people who use these waters, highlights the past, present, and possible future of this sport. More specifically, this research identifies why recreational fishing on the West Coast waters is culturally significant to the people who practice this sport off the southern tip of Vancouver Island.
