Ray Prante’s fishing trip with the McIlvaney’s for Northern Pike and Lake Trout

Great way to relax.

My brother Ray went north to meet up with our family friends, Chris and Jim McIlvaney who used to live in Port Coquitlam years ago but moved up north to the Yukon and never looked back. I can’t say as I blame them from looking at all the recreational opportunities and lifestyle they enjoy. That being said –I don’t think going swimming in Muncho lake is a good idea for a city slicker like me. Something big like these northern pike or lake trout might bite me.

I am however, actually going to go North this summer too– for a mini vacation with my brother, Ray.

It has been years since I went anywhere and this will be spectacular and I will get to see all these areas for myself, thanks to Ray’s kindness and generosity.

Chris &Jim McIlvaney from Whitehorse, Yukon Territories sure caught big ones… Jim caught the Northern Pike and Chris is holding his lake trout. I bet dinner was yummy too.

About Hella

I am working on publishing all of my father, Henry E Prante's treasure trove of hunting adventure stories as well as his only novel. His first book, Great Hunting Adventures was first published in 1985 and is now available via e-book, from www.smashwords.com. Dad also saved all relevant material related to his work with the Port Coquitlam Hunting and Fishing Club and their involvement in the conservation movement and in saving the Coquitlam River and its tributaries for future generations. This part of BC history deserves to be preserved as well. Needless to say, it is a monumental task and will take some time. Henry also travelled through the Yukon in order to get to his beloved Atlin BC. I will endeavour to provide maps and links from Parks Canada or the towns up north and pictures my brother Ray takes on his trips north.
