Photos: A Young Man, a 6-Weight, and a Big Laker

That is a big fish to fight and land on a 6-weight, so this kid clearly has some skills.

Steve Murray, owner of Riverkeep Lodge on the Atikonak River in remote Labrador, sent in these photos of his son, fighting and showing off a chunky lake trout. (You may remember the young man’s big landlocked salmon from back in June.) According to Steve, “The 6-weight Access rod bent to the butt, the mid-arbor reel did its job, and the Orvis rain jacket kept him dry all day.”

The rod bent into the butt under the strain of subduing the big laker.
