The Fly Fishing Show


http://www.flyfishingshow.com/Somerset__NJ.htmlWe will also be at The Fly Fishing Show in Somerset New Jersey this week from Friday January 24 through Sunday January 27. This is considered to be the largest fly fishing show in North America, so pretty excited to go.We have been doing more fly fishing each year both for Northern Pike and for Walleye.
Northern Pike are a lot of fun on a Fly Rod. They hit hard and are not very particular.
Walleyes are a little more challenging but streamers a few feet below the surface work well, the Walleyes will come right up off the bottom after them.
If you are in the eastern New Jersey or southern New York area it would be great to see you and talk about fishing vacations.

Lori Harvey, we will miss you.

It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Lori Harvey on October 21, 2013 from complications post cancer treatment.Lori has been a very special part of the family of Errington’s Wilderness Islands. She came to the resort in 2001 with enthusiasm, a willingness to take on anything, a big smile and a fear of the water (ironic that she would be working from an island on a lake). By the end of her first year apart from waitressing and cabin cleaning , she was driving a boat, doing nature tours by pontoon boat (assured by Ivan Madahbee that bears don’t swim-he still chuckles about that) and cooking shore lunches .

Lori met Larry Harvey when he came to work at our resort in 2002, they fell in love with, or in spite of, the encouragement and scheming of staff and guests and married in the fall of 2008. During her illness, Larry was a very strong support and advocate for her well being. He was, in summary, amazing!
Over the years Lori’s sense of humor and positive attitude endeared her to many of our guests who have sent prayers and well wishes during this past year. Her love of the resort, staff and the people who visited us showed in her daily actions. She was dearly loved by all of us.
Lori, you are rainbows of vibrant color woven into the tapestry of the resort and you will never be forgotten. Even now I see you with that huge smile on your face. I will miss you deeply and will never forget you. You are in our hearts. We love you.

Brad's Catch and Release

Brad went fishing today on this beautiful day and caught a 25 inch walleye. We released it after taking this photo. Sweet catch buddy!

Kathy Hagerty slaying them.

Here is our good friend and fishing enthusiast, Kathy, with a 26 inch walleye (pickerel). She said it was a good fight and at first thought it to be a pike on the end. She reeled in a good one! Catch and released. Roughly 19 years of age this walleye. 
                Way to go KATHY!
