Thanks again Todd and Chris for organizing and makingsire everything runs smoothly. Great job fishing everyone! Thanks for getting all the food too Brian and BBQing:-) ;D

Thanks for the help you and Brian put in too.

And you fished consistently well in both sessions.  Good angling Bobby.  You made some good choices on the water!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Sorry for the delay, but this took an incredible amount of time to do, due to so many fish and using lengths instead of 1 point per fish, point system.

Thanks to everyone that came out and a HUGE thanks to Brian, Bobby, and their helpers, for barbecuing the delicious lunch for the crowd! And a special congratulations to the medalists!!

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

It was a long drive home - no rush for the results!

Good work Johnny!

Taylor, Mike, and Bobby - Good angling guys!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

I am shocked! I told Tina I might be lucky to get 5th with all the big #'s in the afternoon. Some really good fishing by a lot of people. Congrats to you all! Ken and I were talking about how everyone was approaching it differently. Great to see everyone having a good time, beautiful weather and some good eats (thanks Brian & Bobby).
Good job by my partner Ken as well. We stuck with our plan, maybe even waivered about going in a different direction but we stuck it out. If any of you have never met or talked to Ken please do! He is a wealth of information when it comes to fishing lakes and a great guy to chat with.

Johnny, you were consistently good all day, had decent sized fish too boot, and that clearly put you over the top.  Top notch angling.

Thanks to Johnnyalwayssmilin for his kind words, to Todd and Chris for organizing, and to the Danilkiewicz boys for their culinary efforts! :) They even cooked my veggie burger for me. :D

Congrats to everyone from me, too. (Where's that thumb up emoji...?)

I always enjoy competing in these events with such a top-notch bunch of people, and I'm learning as I go. Having a teammate like John certainly doesn't hurt!

I'm looking forward to Harmon Lake and my first-ever river comp on the Similkameen; 'should be big fun.

Cheers! KW
