Reviewed December 23, 2004

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!

The quiet ambience of a decades old lodge with London quisine amidst murmored conversations is a unique experience. Owner/chef Peter McVey embodies PRIDE (Personal Resonsibility in Daily Efforts) when he visits all tables at night for a person-to-person view(s) and interview as to Inn operation, cuisine staff decorum et al. His immaculate starched white uniform, changed hourly along with his fishing patterns, the old world spruce rowboat technology, married to new, y world fishing etiguette. His Senior Advisor, Horace, is always available for consultation and good thoughts.
2003 Recipient of the Chanevaleax de Gran Pesces International Fishing Award, Le Pomme' de Chaddich, and the Rouge Sashe' of the Kingfishers in Bondage, McVey has brought Corbett Lake Country Inn, along with its unique strain of winter hummingbirds, to the epitome of B.C. fly fishing tourist perfection.
