MICK, CANDY AND THE NWTs — SEE HOW BIG THE FISH ARE – BELOW
One of the many reasons I love our Fresh Air Photos — I always learn something! Mick and Candy share with us their trip to Lynx Lake in the Northwest Territories and introduce us to an ESKER. An esker is a long winding ridge with steep sided edges formed during the ice age. How cool (pun intended) is that!? It also looks like Mick and Candy threw the line in once or twice. Check out that big fat healthy 22 pound Lake Trout!
Here’s Mick: “We released the fish, we would only keep a fish if we wanted it for supper that day and this guy was too big for that. Fish like this would be prime breeding stock so we left him/her there to do what he/she’s good at and to grow even bigger”.
DID YOU KNOW? Canada’s Northwest Territories at 1,171,918 square kilometers - is as big as Alberta and Saskatchewan combined, but has just 42,940 inhabitants. Tourism boasts that in the dark winter months you can watch the world’s best northern lights dance ~~ and be there in the summer when the sun never sets.
WE WILL BE BOASTING ABOUT YOU AFTER YOU SEND US YOUR FRESH AIR PHOTO. DON’T WAIT – OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY!
