North Island Lodge Fishing Reports

"Best Seats on Langara Island?"

June 3, 2012 | 925 Views

Check out the Vintage signage discovered deep in the bowels of North Island Lodge.  Now with a little photo editing  … it looks like we have some new NIL branding!

Here’s another vintage item found at North Island.  Celebrating 20 years of working with the West Coast Fishing Club.. DJ Shinduke.  Congratulations DJ on your tenure with the Club and blog readers stay tuned for a captivating Q & A with one of Langaras most veteran guide’s.  Coming soon!!

I’ve received an email yesterday from a Fred Edowrthy who recounted the day he hired DJ which would have been in 1992.  He sends his best wishes for the 2012 season and a BIG hello to Screamer, Chef Walter, DJ, Todd and the gang.

Throughout the off season upgrades and routine maintenance is performed on our fleet of Eagle crafts.  DJ has once again taken this to a new level.  Now he can comfortably fish with multiple guests!  Best seat on Langara?

Maybe this is a little more practical …..

I’d like to take a quick moment to welcome back some of the returning staff.  This guy’s contact with guests is limited for obvious reasons … candid shots of Chef  Nick Brown.  Welcome back Nick!!!

Shannon Rosser …. What a smiler!  After soaking up some sun in Indonesia with her boyfriend Drew,   Shannon has returned to her “home away from  home”  Welcome back Shanahan  it’s going to be an awesome summer!

“Young Nick” St-gelais back again for another season.  He’s voiced his excitement about jumping into a guide roll with North Island and is ready to put “the smack down” on some Chinook salmon.

I’d also like to thank “the Outpost” GM Ken Beatty for his tutorial on editing blog photo’s…

I spent a few hours today preparing the Helly Hanson all weather gear for the arrival our first guests.  Dry suits are looking clean and spiffy.  Sure to keep you warm and comfortable on some of the more “adventurous” days here on Langara.

Picture below is Brent Gallacher oiling the wood on the North Island sign post ..

Well, another big day for us tomorrow.  Just a few small projects for our team to complete and this old lodge will once again be ready for the 2012 season.

From the sounds of things and the word from the other club guides “the elusive” Chinook salmon has been a tad slow in reaching Langara.  I believe this will give us the opportunity to fine tune our angling skills and techniques.  Ill end this blog post with a quote.  “the Sweet is that much sweeter once you’ve tasted the sour” Our patience as fisherman is sometimes challenged but that in itself is what makes the catch that much more exhilarating.  Good night from Langara Island.
