Blanton & Ken Hanley
At Gangler's North Seal Lodge
July 2 through July 9, 2005
Gangler’s is proud to again host two of the world's most well-known and respected fly fishermen, Dan Blanton and Ken Hanley for a great week of camaraderie, learning, and, of course, world-class fly-fishing, July 2 through July 9, 2005 !
Dan has fished with us a total of six times and this will be his third trip to the amazing fishery of the North Seal River. The 2004 trip co-hosted by Dan and Lefty Kreh was a huge success and Dan is very excited about returning in 2005 with Ken Hanley and friends.
Dan became addicted to Northern Canada fly-fishing on previous visits with us and is extremely excited to be co-hosting his third trip to the north Seal with Ken Hanley, his close friend of more than 30 years. Trophy pike, lake trout to 45 lbs., walleye to 12 lbs., and some of North America’s largest Arctic Grayling thrive in these waters and it will be an exciting, action-packed fly-fishing week.
This will be Ken's first visit to Ganglers lodge and the North Seal River. While this will be his first experience pursuing explosive pike on the fly, Ken is no stranger to hosting groups to exciting angling destinations - world wide. He has vast experience both in fresh and saltwater, catching a horde of fly-eating critters. Ken exudes excitement and enthusiasm and is a pleasure to be around.
The structure of the week is very simple- RELAXED. This is not an ‘official’ clinic and there are no extra charges. It is simply an opportunity to hang-out with two of fly-fishing's greats, pick their brains, and enjoy some of the world’s finest fly-fishing opportunities.
"The North Seal
is a vast drainage that hosts Lakes and rivers that hold the kind of pike, Lake
trout and grayling a fly fisher dreams about..."
"My old friend,
Lefty Kreh, is the one who first introduced me to pike and Lake trout on the fly
in Northern Saskatchewan. Since that first
experience with those surface blasting, fly-eating pike and broad-shouldered,
bull-dogging lakers I just can't seem to
get my fill of them. Lefty has never steered me wrong and my first trip to
Gangler's Lodge on the North Seal River in 2002 was splendid. Our July,
2004 trip was a huge success and without a doubt produced the best pike
action I've experienced in a decade. The numbers of big fish were
staggering! I can't wait to share this incredible experience with Ken
can’t wait to experience the heart-stopping action of Canada’s northern
pike. Gangler’s Lodge is perfectly situated to provide a grand home base for
this adventure. With the addition of lake trout, grayling, and walleye, I’ll
be kept busy… that’s for sure!”

In addition to the superb fishing available on the lodge's home lake, Egenolf, there are dozens of superb fly-out lakes that teem with trophy pike, lakers, walleye and grayling, all within a short 25 to 40 minute float plane flight. Experiencing a couple of these exciting fly-outs during your stay is highly recommended. Many fly out several times during a week's stay.
