2012— Week 29

We thought we couldn’t top the last weeks Trophies but we were wrong. Our guests caught a total of 15 Trophies during this week! Even for our standards it is truly remarkable. The following anglers caught Trophy Lake Trout: Jan Eckmann (105 cm), Marcel Fahmer (102 cm), Dieter Kunz (101 cm), Mauro Battistella (100 cm), Fabrizio Paties (103 cm), Simone Gobetti (101 cm), Andrea Canova (100 cm), Mark Dayman (100 cm), Jim Lurie (103 cm), Rene Leutwyler (110 cm), Joe Waldis (2 x 108 cm). Filippo Sabatini caught a huge King of 40 lbs. Dieter Kunz and Joe Waldis caught besides the Trophy Lake Trout also a Trophy Pike of 106 cm and 116 cm. Welcome everybody to our Trophy Club and congratulations! Dieter and Joe were trying hard to get a Trophy Grayling and therefore accomplish the prestigious Grand Slam. Unfortunately their Grayling were 2 cm shy of the Trophy Mark. King Salmon fishing was excellent and all our guests landed some nice fish. We finally had good weather and warm temperatures which was great for dry fly fishing. Our guests had non stop action with Grayling and Rainbow Trout. Three of our guests were witnessing a Black Bear attacking a Moose calf from short distance. The Bear killed the calf and the poor cow couldn’t do anything about it. It was heartbreaking to see but this is nature! As mentioned above we finally have summer in the Yukon. We enjoyed a lot of sunshine and warm temperatures – what a treat! The wind was cooperating as well, it was mainly calm. Truly an unbelievable fishing week with fantastic weather!
