Copper River Lodge guide Nick English hooked up with us in Smithers B.C. for a couple of days of steelheading before heading back to the States. After a fruitless day on the Bulkley Nick and girlfriend Kaylin decided to fish with us on the Kispiox. After being pointed in the direction of a couple of pools by Scott Schumacher, Nick landed this incredible buck measuring 45″ x 25″ with an estimated weight of 37lbs. HOLY CRAP!!
My 10th year (1998-2008) in Mongolia and can’t wait to go back for more. I’ve handled many 50″ plus fish over the years but I have never seen the elusive 60 incher. But as things would go the newest guide in our staff Alejandro Bianchetti (head guide at Villa Maria, TDF) would land one in his second week guiding. All I have to say is what a prick!!!!! Good job Ale and Grif Towle the angler of the year. Hey Grif you should look happier your holding a 60 incher!!!!
