Huh? Fernie, B.C.?!!! I thought this was supposed to be a Blog all about Cuba! I know, but to tell the truth I just couldn't resist. Every summer I take my two boys on a week-long fishing trip. From the beginning, we dubbed it the "No Mom.....No Rules" trip. That meant that hand sanitizer stayed at home, meals could be brawts and chips every night, and sliding down steep canyons walls looking for fish was acceptable.
Past years have taken us to Lake Chopaka, the St Joe, the Missouri, the Bighorn, and numerous other rivers in the west. This year, we headed 10 hours by car to the northeast, to the small Canadian Rockies town of Fernie.
Beautiful? Check. Lots of rivers to fish? Check. Dry fly fishing all day long? Check again.
A big thank you goes out to our friend Paul, owner of Elk River Guiding Company who not only advised us on good water, but leant us a drift boat for a day on the Elk. Here are a few photos of our week......
