SW Wisconsin Driftless Fly Fishing


I had a great time pitching a tent for 5 days at the West Fork Sportsmen Club in Avalanche, Wisconsin to chase trout. The weather could not have been better with days in the low 70's and nights around 50 degrees. The main rivers were slightly discolored and low. Fly fishing was average, but rewarding. I had a great time and couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The WFSC President Kim McDaniel has done a great job with the campground and clubhouse. The clubhouse had a couple activities such as a wedding and a baptism in the river. This revenue is great for a small club to succeed. Since my last visit in April, there are now several outhouses located in various areas of the campground. There is an Iron Ranger pay box which is convenient day or night to pay for your stay. The bathroom and shower were very clean and the staff could not be more helpful or friendlier. This keeps me coming back again and again.

Fly Fishing - Cape Breton Nova Scotia

 Here are some Brookies we caught in Cape Breton Nova Scotia Canada on our vacation recently. Beautiful country and fun finding some streams. Asked permission of a farmer and had a great afternoon. Then later in the week traveled up into the hills on dirt roads and found some more spots. Was catching on pale evening dunn. The fish were dark because of the tanin from the bogs. Ran into some moose also. Doug, me, my older brother Tom and his wife my fishing pal Sal. NIFTY member Liz Jacobs
