Favourite Len Thompson: No. 16 SS (Sun Set)
Best fishing tip for beginners: Always keep your rod perpendicular to your line on your retrieve, that way when you get a bite, the rod can do it’s job and flex and you can sweep the rod to the side to set the hook.

Favourite thing about fishing: I love flyfishing and chucking lures, not sure which I like better though because I just love fishing. Also I just love the water, that is my main draw to fishing, I love being on it, swimming in it, just being around water makes me happy.
Favourite Len Thompson: Five of Diamonds
Best fishing tip for beginners: If you're not catching anything, try casting where you don’t think fish would be, they like to hide in places where you wouldn't think they are hiding.

Name: Lisa Roper
Location: Lac La Biche, Alberta
Favourite thing about fishing: Fishing to me will always be so much more than just catching a fish. It’s about traditions, relationships, the fishing trip adventures, and the enthusiasm of having a fish on your line. It’s about the determination to try again tomorrow when you came up short today. It’s all those fishing moments we remember forever.
Favourite Len Thompson Lure: The Faithful - Five of Diamonds
Best fishing tip for beginners: My best tip for beginners is have fun, enjoy the journey and really appreciate and respect the feeling of having a fish on your line.

Location: Kingston, ON
Favourite thing about fishing: I live at the east end of the magnificent Lake Ontario and have a part time Fishing Charter (Friend with a Boat). My favorite species to target are Chinook Salmons. The great thing about the east end of the lake is that you can also catch Coho, Steelhead, lake trout, walleye, pike, bass... you actually never know what will bite your lures.
Favourite Lure: In 2017 my best Northern King lure was MAG Mixed Veggie. Man! Did I get big salmons and steelheads with this lure. For pike if you never tried Brass and Flame you missed something.
