On the road
by: David Coulson , Colorado6/15/2012
In a few hours I'll be on a jet plane headed for Winnipeg. We'll spend the night there and catch a charter out to Arctic Lodges first thing in the morning. By early afternoon tomorrow I'll be casting flies to some of the best toothy critters Canada has to offer. Fish in the 30 inch class are common and 40 inch fish are not rare, with an outside shot at a 50 incher. Did it once years back bringing a 54 to the net.
The last couple weeks have been spent at the vise whenever I could to replenish my already abundant collection of flies. Whistlers, deceivers, Dalburgs, popper, clousers, and half and halfs were the primary fare. A couple dozen "pike" flies, yak hair monsters were also added to the mix.
This morning I finished packing and come in a little over 40 lbs. I figure five or so for clothing, the rest fishing gear, primarily flies. OK, I may exagerate a bit, but not much, as those numbers don't include my rods and half the reels which will travel on the plane.
Anyway, I'll try to blog daily and keep you update as to my success, and failures as the week goes one. Hopefully, there will be a bit of fish porn to go along with it.
