Miller Lake

This weeks fishing adventure saw me taking a trip to a little lake that I had only just heard about this year. I have been hearing tales of some of the best eating fish in our area coming from this lake and after being there, I can certainly see why that would be true. The [...]

Phillips Lake

I recently took a trip out to a local lake that I have been hearing some very good things about. This lake was one of many in the area that was killed off by Fisheries due to people transplanting invasive species. Someone figured it would be a good idea to relocate perch and bass into [...]

Gardom Lake

Sheena and I got the chance to fish Gardom for a few hours after we closed the shop on Monday and we had a great time. I admittedly don't fish Gardom as often as I should considering the proximity to my house and the great quality of fish that it has grown over the past [...]

White Lake Shoals

The "Mallard Back Minnow"

The Shuswap is still on fire and producing some great fish. I wrote last week about the "Tequila Sunrise" and this week it's all about the "Mallard Back Minnow" by local fly tying expert Les Robinson. This pattern is smaller in stature than the Bucktail patterns which should accurately represent this years junior class of [...]

The "Tequila Sunrise"

Last year I was tying a few polar bear flies to use on Shuswap Lake when I asked Sheena to pick a colour combination of her very own so that I could make her a custom fly. She of course chose a peach coloured hair for the top, a yellow angel hair centre followed by [...]
