Pike sets record

A fly fisherman  landed a record pike on April 30 at Smith Lake near Kalispell.

Ivan Keeney of Kalispell landed the fish with a rod, reel and line outfit that cost a measly $21.

The Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame confirmed Keeney's 30-pound northern pike as a North American record in the fly-fishing category for 15-pound test line.
