Also Canadian Nationals are in late June so time off from work for most might be tough with NALS and other family vaca plans. A day or 2 off would work for most I think and still make this work.


I would love to be part of this. I know you don't have any details, but 2 lake sessions and 2 river sessions, would that be a  2 day competition? and would there be any practice days you think?
I am pretty sure I could get away for this ;)

You don't need practice Eastvan. Just show up and fish like I did last year at the Nationals. You will do fine! Their rivers and lakes are just like ours and you get to use more flies to boot!


Already packing... I'm in!!  ;D


Well done Ernie and everyone involved! Looked like a good time! ;) :)


That is sad to hear  :(. I feared this last year when it was pretty evident that there were not many fish in the lake. Such a well organized event for a great cause but it is hard to bring people to a fishing derby when there are hardly any fish to catch. I'm HOPE this is a big wake up call to H.V.C. to get this lake back to where it needs to be and to stay on top of it. It has always been one of my favorite weekends of the year as we always have a great group of friends that always attend and have the best time. :)

Lets hope it is a go for next year!


I will send up a big bottle so everyone can lather up, be protected, smell great and catch many thirsty fish! 8) :D


Good luck to everyone! Wish I could be there :'( Kills me to miss any comp.


Looks like all the coaches will be there

I love it all! When I go out I usually have 4-5 rods set up with different lines, flies to match those lines and retrieves ready to go. Even the floating with an indicator I have a few different retrieves to keep me interested and focused.

Packed and ready for Leighton tomorrow. A full moon and some unsettled weather will make it a challenge for sure.

One of those remote rivers in Alaska!


That's a great (and fitting) name choice, Johnny!

In the spirit of your actions... Finnley and my team is "Chuck and Duck"! At this time, I'm not exactly sure who will be who...

 ;D ;D
