The trip started with a change in the predominant weather and fishing patterns around Langara Island. Blue skies and warm temperatures gave way to more traditional Charlottes fare – low clouds, mist and occasional showers. Larger chinook, including Dave Easter’s 50 pounder on the first afternoon, set an optimistic tone for the week. Huge numbers of coho continued to keep everybody busy. Several of our guests took full advantage of this opportunity and enjoyed great sport, trolling bucktails on fly rods. Chinook in the 20 to 35# class are appearing in the area but seem to be constantly on the move. Both our staff and guests thoroughly enjoyed the company of two very enthusiastic, first-time visitors, six year old Katelyn Feir and her four year old sister, Laura. Both earned tyee pins on our first-ever "Relative Tyee Day". As I prepare to return home, this past week has served well to remind me of the pure pleasure of enjoying good fun, good fishing and great hospitality with family and friends, albeit vicariously! Thanks to Chef Walter and the great staff and crew at North Island Lodge. Welcome back, Kevin!
