“A special experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

My wife and I were a bit nervous about fishing:
1. I had basically no experience with fishing and never from a boat. My wife had zero experience.
2. Wife gets seasick
Blake was awesome. He took our concerns into account and we went to an area to minimize adverse weather effects. No one got seasick even though the water was far from glassy and we caught 4 great salmon (3 by my wife) with a couple getting away. Blake also helped us get set up with packaging the fish to bring home to San Diego. A spiritual experience in an absolutely beautiful setting. We can't wait until we visit Blake again.

“Great Day with Great Fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We (myself, my wife and my wife parents) had the privilege to spend a 6 hour fishing trip with Blake last week. It was an excellent day; Blake didn’t have time to get the second line in the water before we had hooked our first Chinook salmon. We limited out on 8 beautiful Chinook salmon, released 3 coho salmon and even had time to try our luck briefly with halibut. We were unsuccessful with halibut but were not disappointed at all; we had minimal time to work with. We will try again in the future with Blake.

Blake’s professionalism and knowledge of the fishery was top of line. Hopefully sometime soon we are able to visit Tofino again and I will not hesitate to book with Cleanline Sportfishing. Until we meet again thank you for the memorable day Blake.

“fishing with cleanline sportfishing is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Blake and his team are as great of a guide/skipper as you will find anywhere. Not only you will get top quality gear and awesome boat to be on to go fishing, you will get great insights of the region, history, geography, etc.

their read on the guests and their adventure level and tolerance is great and their suggestions to where to go and what kind of fishing to do a huge bonus.

it has become an annual tradition for bunch of us to go to tofino and this trip wouldn't be complete without going fishing with Blake. Hope he doesn't get too popular now, we still want to be able to have him take us fishing!

“Great Day Fishing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Last Friday we enjoyed our second guided fishing excursion with Blake. As with the last time Blake was a total pro. We set an itinerary for the day and were extremely successful in targeting the fish we wanted to catch. Three of us on the boat my 8 yr old son my 71 yr old father and myself all had the opportunity to experience landing fish and the haul for the day was tremendous. I look forward to enjoying our catch over the next couple months and also to our next trip out. Fishing Tofino is an amazing angling experience and Blake ensured a great day for us. Thanks again.

Hello Bill and family!

Our day out on the water this season couldn't have been any better for three generations fishing together in Tofino, B.C. Despite our first attempt last season with windy conditions, the fish gods were on our side for this round and we sure were rewarded! I look forward to hosting you and your family again next season and wish you may happy fish barbecues this summer! Keep in touch and enjoy the fish!

Kind regards,

Blake Klopfenstein
