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.
