Finding a place you can call home, that truly feels like home is the goal of every family. It needs to be a place that provides the space and comfort for your family to thrive and give access to the amenities and resources you need. For some families, finding a home with a heated workshop is more important than having a coastal view. For others having that extra bedroom will make life much more peaceful than having a garden area. As both a Powell River Realtor and Rental Specialist, helping my clients find the right place to call home is a lot like fishing!
I love fishing, and am an avid salt water boater. Five years ago I started the Powell River Fishing Report, because I wanted to be on top of all the local hot spots, and know what fishing gear was getting the best action. Since then, the report has gathered over 1600 followers and gives locals up to date information about Powell River fishing, prawning, crabbing, boating, and safety tips. It's a page that promotes local shops, and lets people know what's happening. Through the report, I also hold 4-5 "Friday Night Fishing Derbys" each summer. These are a quick, inexpensive, and fun way to fish for a few hours, and have a chance at winning a locally sponsored prize. As it turns out there, there are many people in Powell River who love fishing as much as I do.
There's another reason I put together this free fishing information. It's because communities are built on shared experiences like these that extend the feeling of home beyond the walls of your home. It builds the kind of memories that today's growing families need to feel connected to each other. If you're looking for a home or wanting to know where the fish are biting this week, drop me a line! Sharing my favourite fishing spots is my way of "sharing the wealth". Living in Powell River is an incredible experience, and when you live in a place that's surrounded by so much natural beauty, you just can't keep it to yourself.
