Some of you have heard that Kevin Brown returned to my one of my most prized possessions—a fly rod made for me by the late Bill McGuire, a dear friend. All Kevin wanted, for the rod he found at the Goodwill Store in The Dalles, Oregon, was the fifty dollars he paid for it, and a chance to go fishing with me sometime. My wife and I visited him last month, got the rod, and gave him the money he paid for a rod that was priceless to me. Earlier this week I made good my promise to take him fishing. He and his father Dan met me in Coulee Dam, and we spent two days on the water. They are both avid anglers and it was fun showing off what our area has to offer. Neither of them had done any walleye fishing, so I took them to Banks Lake. We trolled bottom bouncers for a few hours and caught a few fish, but when I switched to pulling crank baits our luck improved. We landed a total of a dozen nice walleye. We talked about ways to prepare walleye for dinner and Kevin was even going to make walleye ceviche.
Kevin and Dan Brown show off one of the walleye we caught on Banks Lake on Wednesday.
