The Russian's in Timmins

   I got an e-mail yesterday morning from the Russian, no text...just 3 pictures. Then again, these pics really don't need any explanation...but I'll fill you in on what's going on. Every year for the last 3 years, the Russian heads north on a week long fishing/hunting trip with his brother inlaw and friends to Timmins  in northern Ontario by the Quebec border.

  Last year's conditions weren't right for him to use his new 8wt set up. This past year for Christmas I dumped a box of large pike flies on him with this trip specifically in mind. I sure hope he's had some success with them, but considering the "fly in" quality of the fishing in the area there seems to be little doubt they'd be effective!
  The Russian in all his glory...walleye snacks and a bottle of Stolichnaya!


  1. WOW, That first photo is AWESOME. What a place to be

  2. Oh man those photos are worth a thousand words. What I wouldn't give to be at a place like that for a week. Excellent. Thanks for sharing. Tight Lines.
