The World's Largest Fly Rod

During the initial days on the road after crossing the border at Sumas, WA, we travelled through Hope, Cache Creek, Williams Lake, Quesnel, and Prince George, B.C. as described by my wife Nola in her separate blog, "Taking the High Road."  The weather was great, the scenery magnificent, and the people along the way, warm and friendly. the little town of Houston, I found a hidden treasure...well, not so hidden.  The world's largest fly rod.  Wowzee!  I knew I was entering paradise.

Thanks to Helga and Roy Byman, we have the opportunity to gaze upon this work of art and let the imagination guide the direction to the next phase of our trip.   Lakes, rivers, and streams lay directly ahead of us.

The only problem in beautiful British Columbia is how to select what would be the favorite haunts of Issac Walton.  There are so many possibilities!  And, with good luck they are directly ahead.  After four long days of driving I am ready to explore the forests and streams.

I've got a date with Dolly Varden on Meziadin Lake in Meziadin Provincial Park.
