I was at a lodge in BC earlier this year where the mention of April's name alone was enough to divert the conversation for a healthy ten minutes at a time.Here's a prime stretch of the Bulkley, empty. For one thing, it's the weekend, so auslanders can't fish. For another, there's a benefit showing of the IF4 fly fishing films in Smithers this evening, April and prominent members of the local and visiting sporting community attending. I'm guessing it's a regular speytosterone fest. I'm sorry to miss it, especially since I bought the tix. Things were going great with a lovely local lady until I asked her to accompany me. "Oh, I didn't know you fished," she said in a decidedly chilly tone. I suspect that some speydog has been there before me and sullied the waters.
