Group 21 – Mixed Family and Friends – August 22 to 25

Old friends, and some new, made up this fantastic group of eager fishers!

An interesting story, and a great pleasure for the lodge this week was having Colin Chandler back. Colin was one of our returning guests who was here when he was just 13 years old. At the time, he caught a Tyee and has always wanted to return. This year he was finally able to make the trip back, now as a prominent navy pilot serving the country in the armed forces.

Also, serving close friends from Montana, and Larry and Nancy Nelson from New Brunswick made this a very magical trip and a fun reunion!

Fishing for this group was average, with Sockeye and Coho the dominant species. A few Chinook were also brought in but nothing reached more than 22lbs which means the big one is still on it’s way!

Debbie Bernard, Sally’s sister, was also a guest this week who hasn’t been back to the lodge since 2000! It was wonderful having her and all of her great energy back at the lodge. Everyone was excited to see her in the Queen’s Chair on the second night!

All in all this blogger really enjoyed this group and all the fun memories that were created.
Sund’s Lodge is truly where memories are made!
