Big Jim, big battle ahead...

Big Jim McLaughlin, a local fishing hero recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, faces the toughest battle of his life, and now his old friends at Muskie's Canada have set up a raffle to assist the big guy in his fight.

"Everybody knows Big Jim and what he has done as an ambassador for fishing," said Matt Clay of Muskie's Canada.
Four awesome prize packages have been put together with the help of local vendors and are being raffled off at $5 a ticket. Each package is valued at more than $1,200 and each ticket offers a chance to win some great tackle, with proceeds going to help Big Jim with his cancer treatments. It is a small price to pay for a guy who has helped so many in the outdoor community, so I urge you to dig deep.

To purchase a ticket, please call Clay at (613) 723-9234 or e-mail him at mattclay@rogers.com.
