July 30th to August 02, Father Knows Best

August already, unbelievable how fast the time is going. We have had some guest that have been on the Thunder for many years but no one longer than George and Russ. After much reminiscing the count is close to 26 years of fishing together on the West Coast of which 22 years have been aboard the Thunder 1. Not sure that record will ever be broken. This trip saw George bring four of his son in laws, Ray, Craig, Rob and Scott. With residences scattered from Tennessee to Calgary to Vernon to Langley it was quite a feat to bring them all together. We could not have asked for a better trip to showcase our fishing or coast. I can only describe the fishing as electric as many times we could not get two rods in the water before being ripped by a big Coho or a Pink. Double headers, triple headers, jumpers, slashers, reels zinging what fishing we had. The final tally is irrelevant , the most important part was good humour, good company and good memories. Thanks to George for bringing the gang and to his brother Russ for managing the chaos on the back deck with his years of experience. Oh did I mention we got some great hali’s as well. Safe travels gentlemen, I hope we can make it 23!!
