Hi, I’m Rick Hackinen. I’ve been a salmon fishing guide in the Campbell River and Quadra Island area for 40 years. I have guided for numerous fishing lodges, hotels and B+Bs and operated independently for my clients. Many of my guests repeat annually, and others make a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Over the years, I have taken out a variety of folks, captains of industry, television, sports figures, and even an astronaut, as have many of my peers and fellow guides. Everybody gets the same courteous treatment; everyone is a VIP. Brightfish is also a connection to a community of fellow career guides to arrange multiple boats for bigger groups, such that no job is too big, or too small. We can provide memorable experiences for you, your friends, your family, or for your business relationship building.
