Congratulations to Ivan Turner of Bothell who is this week’s winner, and answered first by saying it was “Jameson Lake.”
“My earliest fishing recollection is when I was very young, a long time ago standing on a slippery rock on the side of the Wenatchee river with a cane pole trying to catch trout,” Turner said. “Back then the parents didn’t hover over kids as much. After my father left to fish on his own I was moving around on the rock and slipped and dropped my pole in the water. My father was down stream and noticed the pole go by and got very excited.”
“Needless to say he wasn’t happy about me losing my pole and “tanned my hide”. Not a good start to my fishing career.”
“I recovered somewhere along the line and started tying and fly fishing when I was 12 and have been fly-fishing and fly-tying ever since. I like backpacking my float tube into mountain lakes when I can find them that is. I’m still trying to catch a golden trout, maybe next year. If I don’t have time to backpack I like Lake Langlois or the Teanaway.”
Turner wins a nice hard-covered outdoor book.
