I have fished with Ryan for several years. I have found him to be very professional and courteous. He has first class equipment - boat, rods, reels, fishing gear and bait. He knows where the fish are and the best way to catch them. I have never been skunked with Ryan.
I am looking forward to coming to Tofino again this year and having a successful fishing trip. I would highly recommend Ryan if a fishing trip to Tofino is in your future plans.
I have fished many locations around the world and every year I make it my top priority to make it out to Tofino and fish with Allan Chase. His rental accommodations are first class and private and after what has become his trademark of providing me and any of my friends, clients and family with an unbelievable day of fishing on his boat, it's great to relax at his beautiful home. The house is in a great location to walk to restaurants and see Tofino.
I have been fishing with Allan for about 10 years now and he is bar-none the best guide I have ever experienced. Professional, clean, exceptionally knowledgeable about locations and his trade. His first concern is always his clients and it shows in every detail of my trips booked with him. I have referred many clients, friends, family and employees to Allan and his great house and charter services in Tofino and every experience has been exceptional for my peers. I still try other fishing and holiday experiences throughout my travels, but they all continue to place far behind what Allan continually provides. Great accommodations, unbelievable fishing, and truly a gentleman I have the privilege to now call a friend. Tight lines and thanks again Allan for all the amazing memories.
We had a wonderful charter fishing experience with Carmen on the Miss Sea Aug 5, 2014. We felt very safe, properly guided, along with being respected. Carmen was experienced in her knowledge of all species of Pacific sea life including the Velella. Besides her experience and knowledge Carmen was a delight during the 9 hour charter.
We would certainly go book another charter with Carmen and would recommend her to other fishermen and fisherwomen.
We caught our limit of Halibut, 4 Coho, 4 Chinook and 1 Sockeye.

I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to write a note regarding our fishing experience with Allan Chase.
My wife and I along with our three grown sons have fished every first week in July with Allan for the last 12 years. Each time we are amazed the he consistently fills almost all of the limit of springs and halibut for four of us. That speaks volumes about his fishing skills.
While on board his boat Chasing Tail, we found Allan to be a conscientious, capable host. He is quick to recognize individual fishing skill levels and makes the appropriate adjustments so that each fisherman feels that they are a vital part of the fishing process and can enjoy success.
He has a good sense of humour which he uses effectively to down play those amateur mistakes that inevitably result in lost fish. His gear and boat are kept in immaculate condition which makes for a pleasant and successful fishing experience. He also pays close attention to safety issues, which goes a long way to make his guests feel comfortable.
Since he opened up his guest house, we have stayed there. It is conveniently located within 150 metres of where his boat is moored. We have found the accommodations to be very clean, comfortable, well decorated and roomy for all of us. We especially appreciate the adequate bathrooms and bedrooms for each of us.
We have fished in several other places and with other guides, but have found Allan and what he has to offer to be by far the best situation for us. The price, accommodation, and the fishing experience has kept us coming back each year. We will in all likelihood continue to be with Allan for as long as we want to participate in a successful and enjoyable salmon fishing experience.

Over ten years our group has always caught a load of salmon & halibut, on many occasions far out-pacing the bounty of the other boats. Depending on the time of season, ling cod, crab and prawns are available for the taking. The majestic West Coast of Vancouver Island, combined with the skillful and pleasurable mannerisms of Allan & Carmen, make for a delightful day on the waters off Tofino. Not to mention the well appointed 3 bedroom (2 full bath) suite awaiting your arrival, after a fulfilled day of fishing; and only a 5 minute walk from the Marina & Pub!
Tofino House and chartering with Allan & Carmen is a must, when visiting Tofino, the Pearl of the West Coast.
