Bob Anstead, AKA: The Rod Doctor, has been a "fishin' fool" since age 3 growing up in Santa Cruz, California, and fishing with his Dad in the legendary San Lorenzo River. FINALLY, August 31, 2013, after 42 years (27 of those here on the Sunshine Coast), Bob RETIRED from the Sunshine Coast Salmonid Enhancement Society Fish Hatchery in Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada!  There, together with a group of wonderful volunteers, he helped to bring the salmon population back, better than ever, to the Sunshine Coast. Check out the hatchery website and see for yourself: www.scsalmon.org. There's a link at the bottom of the page for easy access. There is also a link that shows Bob's involvement, influence, and knowledge in the raising, caring, and release of those wonderful little critters that inhabit our waters due to his efforts and the efforts of lots of wonderful volunteers!

Bob not only knows how to raise these wonderful creatures, but he also is an expert at catching them. Bob's goal is to make fishing affordable for everyone who wants to fish! His knowledge of the proper fishing gear and expert rod repairs has made him quite the "sought-after fellow"!

Please contact Bob for your fishing tackle needs, rod repairs, crab & prawn traps, and any questions you may have. Bob will also buy your unwanted fishing tackle for a fair price. He can be reached at 604-885-3057 (shop) or 604-741-2317 (cell/shop) or 604-885-4421 (home) or by e-mailing: TheRodDoctor@gmail.com.
