As an avid fly angler living in the lower mainland of BC, my fishing partner and I used to look forward to stalking the trout by dry fly at Corbett Lake on a regular basis. The fishing was outstanding and the many downed trees and weed beds provided some exclellent cover for these hard fighting Kamloops Rainbows.
Mr. McVey and his staff were surprisingly unpleasant despite the consistent business we provided and we were shocked when we recieved no thanks or recognition when we left two bottles of fine french wine for Peter. Instead we were later greeted with acusations of theft (it seems Peter had lost a fly box and saw us as the prime suspects). During dinners he would intentionally ignore us when displaying flambays to the dining room and just seemed to be put off by our presence.
After taking our money he banned us from staying further at his lodge for reasons that are still unclear to me. Peter McVey is a classless fool!
