I am ready to ride.
Andy/Gord…I’m pleased to announce that I expect to ride in 2015. You may recall that I damn-near lost a finger to an enraged bull perch two years back. But modern physical therapy treatments, along with many pain killers, have me geared-up to get back in the saddle this July.
Gord, just a few questions before I commit to the rodeo. What is the time limit in order for a ride to be considered a “full perch” ride? Are chaps required to be worn while riding? If so, does VBL have them on hand for participants? You can only imagine what kind of attention would be drawn to a fella if they had to wear them through the airports on the way up to VBL this summer.
PJ…….“Riding the Perch” is part of the Eagle Lake legend but is totally optional in terms of the contest. Thus, while chaps are not mandatory, they may have potential for bonus points. Unfortunately my crotchless chaps were absconded with by a rather shady guest…”The Perchmaster”. He also left with my riding crop and yellow beret.
Since the “Standard Outfit” for riding bull perch is no longer available and/or required, I’m in. I’ll be the fella in the Stetson hat sporting boxers and boots. As they say in rodeo…. it is time to ” Cowboy Up”. As a side note, the flap on the boxers will be sewn shut…..no need for a senseless injury or loss of bodily parts if a fella were bucked off and muskies happened to be in the area.
Harassment that’s all I get!!!!
exciting and colourful presentation! Perch ! Yellow Perch! Jumbo Perch. bULL pERCH Lert’s have a good clean ride out thar!
Charles the art work is outstanding. However, I would suggest that the cowboy should be wearing a Kenora dinner jacket? That’s what I will be wearing on my ride. It’s all the rage since the River Monsters episode.

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.
What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
