Lang’s Fishing Adventures scours the Fraser River in search of trophy white sturgeon and salmon under the captainship of guides boasting more than 15 years of experience each. During the four-hour fishing trips, anglers board brand-new 22-foot North River jet boats outfitted with marine first aid, including life preservers and crow's nests for a bird's-eye view into fish's living rooms. Freshwater Ahabs then sling fly or casting tackle in search of prehistoric white sturgeons or prolific salmon upon reaching the fishing grounds. A protected species requiring strict catch-photograph-release practices, the muscular and bone-armoured white sturgeon typically reaches 3- to 10-foot lengths. Trophies reaching upward of 20.1 feet greet their catchers with a congratulatory handshake and autographed headshot. Not as big but sporting way more attitude from swimming upstream, multiple species of saltwater salmon from plucky sockeyes to beefy chinooks cruise into the river based on season.
Each trip requires a minimum of four people, and buyers may purchase additional Groupons for friends or their favourite alley cats or can let Lang's coordinate a trip with other eager line casters. Boatswains sans fishing licence may arrange one through Lang's.
Lang's Fishing Adventures
Lang Nguyen sat at his cubicle, alternating between closing insurance deals and thinking about his next weekend fishing trip. Seeing how much her husband enjoyed being on the water—and recognizing there's only so much time to split between a job, a dream, and a family—Nguyen's wife encouraged him to turn his passion for aquatic adventure into a full-time career. He returned to work, took his office supplies out for a goodbye lunch, and then found a new cubicle aboard a 22-foot North River boat.
Today, Nguyen and his guides—all possessing at least 15 years of experience—lead anglers in search of sturgeon and salmon during fishing trips along the Fraser River's dramatic terrain. They also organize walk-and-wade trips to catch steelhead and trout with casting or fly tackle.
Still more of a fisherman than businessman at heart, Nguyen values the experience of being on the water above all else. He backs every full-day sturgeon trip with a catch guarantee, observing, "My competitors hate me because of that." He'll also reschedule clients' trips should conditions look unfavorable. Though he's experienced working with every level of angler, his favorite clients are the ones who have never caught a fish before and can't hide the excitement inspired by their first haul.
