'Time on the Water"…….Quote #5

“Musky fishing is not for pessimists. You’ve got to believe that next cast will be the one, a notion that falls just short of being completely absurd. Realism must be avoided at all costs. If I knew I wasn’t going to catch a keeper for days at a time, it would be mighty hard to go out there every day. I should know it. That’s the way it’s always been, for me and for most others too. I guess you could say I know I probably won’t catch anything, but I don’t believe it.”

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
