Derek Richardson with his son (and good luck charm) Gregory show off the 40 cm kokanee that won him first place in Clearwater Rotary's Ice Man fishing derby on Sunday morning, Feb. 5. Richardson used maggots on a glow hook and a Deka special spoon. First place prize was $300. 'I'm more excited about catching the fish than winning the derby,' he says. 'It's like a little sockeye on the table.' Don Guitard took second place in the derby and Ingo Demski third. About 50 adults registered, and they were accompanied by many children and onlookers.
