I am Richard Best, the person who showed up at your last Wednesday fly tie meeting at Cabelas. As I mentioned then, I am looking for people to float rivers with. I am retired so I can go most any time - if conditions are right and I am not doing something else and if my car is roadworthy. I had to pay for $1,200 worth of repairs after my last trip to Lucky Creek.
So if anyone is interested I will put out a feeler here. Does anyone want to go fishing? Nanaimo R would be my first choice. But also basically anywhere that has fish. Taylor R, Cowichan, Kennedy?
So if anyone is interested you can reply with a post here. Or send me an email at:
Also, I mentioned that I have a video series posted on YouTube, with 19 episodes posted so far. You can find them by searching on Youtube for Humpty's Basstravaganza. Many are about bass fishing with homemade lures. Probably not that interesting to most folks in your group. You might be interested in the last one I posted about steelhead fishing with homemade wooden lures. If you wish, you can watch it here:
Ep 19 A Toast to Toivo. Wild steelhead on homemade rapala lures.
I am willing to leave my spinning rod at home if it is offensive to others. Let's go fishing!
