Sometimes, there's great great fishing to be had when we have the chance to go, so I accepted another invite to fish with my buddy Gordy below the priest Rapids Dam for winter Whitefish Friday morning. There's something quite majical abut Gordy's hand tied Glow bug egg pattern flies because from the git go, at least, Gordy was into some big, hard fighting Columbia river Whitefish. I struggled today to hookup as often as Gordy "kicked my tail" and put 11 fish on the bank to my 4 landed in about 4 hours of fishing. Later on my good firend David Child of Mattawa showed up with his kids and we all had a great time catching fish! Gordy was quite a hoot as we flipped each other crap esp when he asked me what my problem was today. He reminded me that "He was used to dealing with "special needs types"- (IE: read my pathetic fish catching peformance...) Oh well, It sure beat sitting at home! Thanks again brothers for the memories, beautiful scenery and the chance to film a short lure/fishing video that can be seen on my facebook page @ Jigmiester Custom Lures. Tight lines, Jiggy

I prefer them smoked the best. Gordy steams them but they are a tad bony. Pickled or home canned they are a lot like canned herring. Thanks again Mr. Gordon for the trips and the company. Even if you are an old fart who kicked my tail end out there! Lol Jiggy

Hi F.C. I think your right on Jiggy is hook for life. I think me and you must have started fishing for them about the same time.I couldn't
wait for the winter to go white fishing. Me and my dad would go all most every weekend a lot of great memories I am glad Jiggy is now
fishing for them. If it wasn't so far I would meet you guys for the day take care and God Bless.
