Not everyone knows that Len Thompson lures are Canadian made and manufactured locally in Lacombe, Alberta. Happy Canada Day!
What I initially thought would be a quick custom lure drop off turned into the experience of a lifetime. I hoped when stopping by the Snowbirds' base in Moose Jaw, SK, that I would be able to take a photo in front of the iconic Tutor aircraft. Instead, I was given an incredible 2-hour private tour and had a photo taken INSIDE of the Tutor!
Master Corporal Mike has been involved with the Snowbirds for around 25 years which makes him an IDEAL tour guide. He showed us every nook and cranny of the base. The metal shop, the engine shop, the tire and brake shop, the avionics shop, the engine thrust test area, the ejection seat area, the parachute area, pilots briefing room, CO's office… literally everywhere.
Throughout the tour, I was amazed at the dedication and pride of each person we met. We had interesting conversations with three pilots, were introduced to at least 20 NCO's and the base commanding officer spent five minutes chatting with us (he is a big fan of Len Thompson, and the outdoors in general).
We received this awesome message and wanted to share...
"You helped sort out for me last year’s double shipment of the blue/silver lures. Eventually, I ended up with two boxes of them which I handed out to the 10 employees we took fishing near the Canadian border over last weekend. After trying various lures, we left the others in the tackle box and fished with “yours.” They were the most productive.
So, thanks for your help last year. We put them to good use!"
