PAGE TWO THE CATALINA The "Good Fishing" Power Skiff Among the numerous pleasure craft that arrived in Avalon on the Fourth of July was the ',Ikigihk," port of Juneau, Alaska. The "Ikigihk" is one of the smallest crafts to cross the :hannel recently, being only a sixteen foot Evinrude skiff, powered with a 2 H. P. Evinrude. She was brought over from Wihnington by John Edwin Hung, journalist, and George G. Wurz- burger, of the Los Angeles automobile firm of H. J. Wurzburger, Inc. Mr. Hoag came to Catalina Island for the purpose of doing some fishing, photographing, and note writing, to be later incorporated into illustrated copy for the use of editors of various nat- ional magazines and metropolitan daily newspapers, to which he has been a frequent contributor for the past ten years Mr. Wurzburger adnfits that a spirit of adventure, and a desire to see Catalina Island, are his reasons for making the trans-channel trip in a sixteen-foot boat. The "Ikigihk" is the boat in which Mr. Hung last summer journeyed from Skaguay, Alaska, to Seattle, 1000 miles, through the scenic "Inland Passage." a trip that required twenty-one days. "The trip from Wilmington to Ava- lon yesterday," said Mr. Hoag, "was entirely uneventful. We left the San Pedro breakwater at 9 o'clock in the morning, and reached Catalina Island, near The Isthmus, at 2 in the after- noon. The sea was like a mill pond, and in spite of the small size of our craft I don't believe we shipped a tea- cup full of water. We sighted two marlin swordfish about ten miles off Catalina Island, and spent nearly an hour chasing them and taking photo- graphs." When the pronunciation of the name of Mr. Hoag's boat brought forth a chuckle, he explained that the name was appended to the craft in Alaska shortly after being launched and regis- tered in Juneau. The language of the Atlin Indians supplied it -- the word "Ikigihk" meaning good fishing. "DUALWOOD" RODS STAND HARD PUNISHMENT m "Yes, I finally got the broadbill well hooked, and had him on * ** * * hours, But * * *" So often that con- founded but. Why? With the new high-test, long fibre lines, the airplane cable leaders, and splendidly improved reels and rod harness, throwing the brunt of the battle on the somewhat limited sixteen ounces of rod tip, there has been an urgent SOS broadcasted for something stronger than split bam- boo, and with more backbone than hickory. By utilizing the time-tested tensile strength of second-growth hickory, backed up by the equally superior non- compressibility of the South Sea Is- land "Bahia," Roy Shaver has, after his twenty-odd years of rod making, produced a rod tip hailed by progress- ive anglers as phenomenal in its per- formance under the most grueling tests. On his Lower California cruise Keith Spalding, who used the new Shaver rod exclusively, landed two 215-pound and several other tuna, and Ed Feath- erstone, after a three-hour fight with a monster broadbill, declares the "Dualwood" rod came back perfectly straight, and is the most wonderful rod he ever handled. Looks like a new era in salt water rod construction has been started. Wear your Light Tackle Club but- ton. tt shows that you are an angler and a sportsman.
