9781894759267: Flylines & Fishtales: The Story of Glimpse Lake Lodge

In 1981, John Grain's passion for the outdoors led him to create a consortium that purchased Glimpse Lake Lodge, a neglected fishing camp near Merritt, BC. The discovery of a tattered diary inspired him to write Flylines & Fishtales before time and age erased the events completely or exaggerated them beyond belief. It combines a brief history of the homestead that became Glimpse Lake Lodge, with the hilarious, tender and sometimes heartbreaking events that marked the group's years of ownership from 1981 to 1987. Each day was a new adventure marked by unexpected encounters with wildlife, intriguing people and even ghosts.

Flylines & Fishtales weaves a stirring and remarkable journey of a young family who abandoned the urban frenzy and embraced the tranquility and serenity of a rural lifestyle. In so doing, they learned those family values and precious life lessons that will be passed on for generations.

About the Author:

John Grain has been an avid outdoorsman since growing up on Saltspring Island in the 1960s. He has been a BC public school teacher since 1976 and is active with the BC Teachers Federation and the BC College of Teachers. He was also a fishing guide and taught the C.O.R.E hunting program. A few times each year John and his wife Kirsti still make the trek to Glimpse Lake to enjoy the fishing and to chuckle or shed a tear over those magical memories from so long ago.
