Fish Tales: My Bucket List
Grosvenor Americas SVP Glenn Barrick says just visiting the Haida Gwaii—also known as the Queen Charlotte Islands—was on his bucket list. Growing up in Ontario, he'd fished two or three times but never on Canada’s west coast. At the Rick Hansen Fishing Challenge at Langara Fishing Lodge, he got an initiation. “During the first two days of the tournament, I caught a few fish, saw some whales, and was in complete awe of the scenery,” he tells us. On Day 3, the last day of competition, he hooked something major. “My guide Takao saw it jump and informed me that it was a big one,” he says. It took 25 minutes to get the Chinook salmon into the boat—all 42.5 pounds of fish. Glenn was the rookie champion of the tournament. At work, Glenn's been working on the development of Grosvenor's Ambleside mixed-use project on Marine Drive in West Vancouver, set to break ground.
