A photographic journal.
by Dale C. Spartas
From the May/June 2008 issue.
Sixty miles south from the sixtieth parallel. Spruce and fir and tamarack. Moose and wolves, the aurora
Lake trout, pike and grayling. Ciscos, streamers, big tin skiffs. Fast casts, quick strips, singing
reels. Long days, sunshine, autumn warmth. Lake trout, pike and grayling.
Cast and strip and cast again. Catch, release, repeat. Beach and fire and sitting rocks. Catch, fillet and
eat. Lake trout, pike and grayling. Nice one! Big one! Hero shots. Silence, wildness, no contrails. Sixty
miles south from the sixtieth parallel. Fly rods, friends and memories.
Dale Spartas traveled to Milton Lake Lodge in northern Saskatchewan, where he found the lodge and food
five-star,and the northern lights viewed from the hot tub off the charts. The fishing was top-drawer
as well. Visit Milton Lake Lodge on the Web at www .miltonlakelodge.com. See more of Dale’s work on
