Flounder on the Fly

This was a great surprise. While casting for cutthroat I hooked what I thought was a heavy fish. A strange fight turned out to be a flounder . Just as I landed it a classroom of kids came by and we took this photo!!!

Giant Canadian brook trout

Well everyone comes to Western BC for steelhead but I found there are wonderful brook trout in the lakes as well! They were stocked at one time but they now thrive!!  After catching 7 and 8 inch fish in Michigan this summer this big fish was a shock! Estimated at 22 inches and 5 pounds it struck an egg sucking leech!!!

Pierce clegg

 I had the pleasure to fish again this year with Pierce Clegg on the Babine River , Bc Pierce is a great harmonica player and the former owner of Nor Lakes lodge , We launched his jet boat by the fish fence and he landed this steelhead on the 3rd cast, Steelhead is about covering water he says!!
