Kispiox River Fly Fishing Ken James McLeod

The Kispiox River first entered my father's life (George W. McLeod) in 1955, when he and three others fishing friends (Web Thompson, Bill Elsey and Marvin Olsen) set up a trip to fish the river. It began with a float plane ride to Swan Lake, where they proceeded to do a "first ever" recreational rubber raft fishing trip down the Kispiox from its source, it lasted 8 days. And on the last day, George landed a world record on a fly of 29 lbs. 2 oz. using the Skykomish Sunrise.
