Fishing with Orcas – 1971

Years ago (about 50) a friend and I were out in a very small boat out off Pender Island. We were fishing. All of a sudden I caught a big salmon Then, also suddenly, we were surrounded by a pod of orcas! They were jumping and swimming all around us and under us. It was a fabulous experience all be it a scary one. One swipe of a tail and we would have flipped for sure!!! A special memory I will always have! (Too bad we did not have cell phones in those days!)
