Chucks Pike

Gangler’s Featured in ‘Fly Tier’ Magazine

Chuck WalleyeLast spring, we had the pleasure of hosting Chuck Furimsky, one of the originators of the Fly Fishing Show. Chuck’s company has several popular sport shows sprinkled across the country and specializing in fly fishing. Chuck had really wanted to fish Gangler’s for several years based on the many excited reviews he was getting from his friends in the industry. Once he received a story assignment for Fly Tier magazine, he was on board. Chuck Chuck Pikeenjoyed an incredible 5 day trip, landing over 200 fish on a fly rod including several of the monsters in the these photos.

‘My first visit to Gangler’s Lodge in Manitoba was everything I had dreamed about and more. The lodge was spacious with a great bar and pool table. Food was so creative I thought I was dining at a five-star restaurant. And the best of all was the fishing. I fly fished, but my buddy spin fished. At the end of the week we both agreed our pike count was about 200 each, plus plenty of walleye, and a few lake trout. Can’t wait to return.’
