THE STEELHEAD SCOURGE OF B.C.'S BABINE IS BACK!!!

( one of Doc Flah's 20 lbers from the Babine taken on my electric candy cane string leech)

( a buck and a hen by the Doc from the Mo , Wed. and Thurs.)




YES......back by popular demand, it was Dr. John Flajherty (Flah!) from Chicago, whose known conquest of 20 lbers from B.C.'S Babine is legendary!


Had a couple of great days with the Doc. He hit some nice steels, caught some nice fat trout stripping streamers and we got to play with his new Meiser two-hander- 13-1/2 ft-7/8 with a 525 grain Skagit.John was testing it out for his multiple yearly trips to the big""Bab".

Water was really low Thursday, but should come up with all the rain this weekend.Caddis and a few Quills and March Browns make up the surface melange.

"Strip baby-strip!"- or as Sarah Palin put it"drill baby drill" but that's with streamers, not on the golden pole....lol(actually that's o.k. too if you want !)

Morels coming- this funghi head has been stumped thus far.

OH YEAH....I HAVE SOME SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS COMING UP- HOPE TO SEE YOU IF YOU CAN ATTEND!
