Paul Messner has been given a used pontoon boat and would like to pass it along to another WIFFC member that could use it. The frame is in good shape, but we noticed the anchor line pulley is rusty. The oars are missing. The inflatable pontoons appear to be in great shape and good bladders. Contact Paul to make arrangements to view and or pick up.
The Washington Council of Fly Fishers International is holding its first ever Fly Casting Fair May 2 at Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island. Whether you’re a year-round angler or waiting for warmer weather, there’s no off season for a good cast. We’ve put together a day-long fair that offers plenty of FREE ways to tune up your cast, learn new techniques, test yourself and friends on a challenge course, and watch some of the best casters in the Northwest during morning and afternoon demonstrations. Two-hour advanced courses cost $45 per caster, but the rest of the day is free. Bring a friend, son, or daughter, and introduce them to the art of casting a smooth line. And after a day of fun join us for a drink and dinner at the Mercer Island Community Center, just steps away on the park grounds. This is a great opportunity to perfect your loop and connect with fly fishers in Puget Sound and beyond. Go to www.wscffi.org for more details to register for classes and dinner.
I fished Pass Lake today for a couple hours. The lake water is clearing up nicely, and the water temperature is still high enough that I can feel my feet at the end of the day. There are still fish to be caught, too. This 22-inch brown trout took my black wooly bugger trolled deep and slowly. My guess is that if Passs Lake is producing, Lone Lake is too. Can anyone confirm or refute?
