Wrapping up the Fishing Season

Hard to believe the summer is over. As we come to an end of our 2013 fishing season it was time for Deb and I to break out our custom fly rods, compliments of our friends Larry and Vicki and have one last go at those big hard fighting Northern Coho. All I can say is Yahoooo! What a rush that is to hook up a 17 lb Coho on a 9ft. custom made 10 weight fly rod with and Islander MR 3. To give the fish their do, lots earned their freedom but some nice ones made the boat after spectacular fights. A perfect way to end the fishing season. As we put the rods away it is not the end of the charter season for the crew of the Thunder 1 and we set our sights on providing camp boat services for both the forestry and following that a mission for the Canadian Coast Guard. Looks like we will be on the north coast for a while yet.
