Tokyo cabbies supermen Tokyo's taxi drivers are among the most skilled in the world for U> drive in the city traffic you almost have to be superman. They are also possibly the world's fastest cab drivers, and will squeeze their vehicles through the tiniest gap in the traffic. It is rightly said, incidentally, there are no bad drivers in Tokyo if they are not good, they never survive to take the test! Tokyo's cabbies have more than the usual problems of their profession, In that many Tokyo streets have no names. Instead, one has to describe the district, or a familiar ad- jacent landmark. Quite a few areas are named after old streetcar stops, but as the streetcars have long since dis- appeared., it can get mighty confusing even for the Jap- anese! Most visitors use matchboxes (alt stores, hotels and restur- anls give them .1 w a y, some complete with maps) or notes written by clerks to help them get around town. cabbies are very obliging, and if one has problems and gives them a ten-yen coin, they will phone ahead to the destination [or directions. Cabs cost 170 yen about SO cents for the first two kil- ometers (1.2 then 30 yen, or 10 cents, for every exlra quarter mile. WHERE FISH STORIES ARE TRUE Fishermen's tales are tail but usually true in northern Saskatchewan'! huge wilderness region. Here fishermen reel in a 27-pound lake Irout caught in Wapala lake, south of Black Lcko and southeast of Uranium Cily. Accessible only by float plane Ihis virtually virgin lerrilory has the reputation of pro- viding some of the finest fresh water tingling in North America. (Canadian Govt. Travel Bureau Photo) Cree Lake Ixrige outfitter Jerry Hammersmith describes his lake as being the "pike cap- ital of the The state- ment Is emblazoned across the top of the lodge's letterhead. The lake is located in Sas- katchewan's northern Precam- brian Shield, about 180 miles north of the jumping-off base of La Ronge. Ln Kongo in turn Is about MO air miles north of Regina, but It's also accessible by road. The Cree Lake operator has Borne substantial evidence to up his claim. With regular con- sistency, the lake leads all others in Saskatchewan in terms of the number of quali- fying entries in the provincial anglers derby. Only northern pike 18 pounds and over are ac- cepted In the derby, and In 1971 a total of 139 pike out of 383 qualifing entries came from Cree Lake. The second-placed entry of 30 pounds, nine ounces, and six of llic top 10 were from Cree Lake. These lunker fish, Incidental- ly, were caught by a total of 284 fishermen guests. These fig- ures illustrate the almost 50 per cent possibility of anglers going home with a trophy after fish- ing the waters of Cree Take. As a bonus, the lake has ex- cellent Arctic grayling fishing in the Cree River. The largest grayling in Saskatchewan at three pounds, 14 ounces came from this river in 1971. The lake is noted for its trophy lake trout, but one thing is for sure, the lakers are plentiful.

Phono 328-3000 or 327-4094 unusual, especially in the month o[ September, to catch and re- lease 50 to 100 lake trout in the course of a day's fishing- Most anglers, however, go to Cree hoping to take a world's pike record. Hammersmith be- lieves that this possibility exists. The largest northern ever caught by an angler at Cree is 37 pounds, but a whop- ping 46 pounder was landed by a trapper in a net. At approximately 500 square miles in size, Cree is the fifth largest lake in the prov- ince. Some 500 islands dot the lake. Geologically, the lake seems out of place in the rooky Pre-Cambrian Shield. Looking much like a giant Held of swathed grain from the air, a massive floor of sandy terrain covers the Cree Lake area. This unusual feature stretcher 30 to 50 miles south and nnrth of the lake. Despite the fact that many parts o[ the lake have been fished, Hammersmith is continually on the lookout lor new hjtspols for his paying guests, A floatplane is based at camp to move anglers into some of the surrounding waters for a change of pace. Fisher- men can tackle Caribou, l.ans- downc, Wlrile Owl, Close and Rumple Lakes for a day of fishing, and then return to the main lodge in the evening. At three locations on Cree Lake, Hammersmith is building out- post cabins so that anglers can slay overnight with their guides. The expert Chippewayan guides follow the pike as they move to different parts of the lake during the course of a sea- son. Jn the early summer after ice-out, around the end of May, the northerns are found in the shallow bays and at the mouths of the weedy rivers. As the water temperature warms up, the pike move out into the sand- bars. In the fall when the lake (rout arc spawning, the pike change their habits again and take to the rocky reefs. Here the voracious feeders find plen- ty of Ixout and suckers lo sat- isfy their appetites. With less than 300 fishermen going lo Cree in a year, the potential of the lake has hard- ly been touched. Tike take many years in the cold waters of the north to reach trophy size, but wilh the vast size of Cree and the numerous rivers, the lake holds many pike hide- outs for anglers of the future. Cree Lake is accessible only by plane. Two airslrips are lo- cated on the Jake, one of Ihem feet by 200 feet) is op- erated by the Department of Transport. A second is a grass strip located just a few miles away from the camp. Most anglers, however, come In by float plane from La Rouge, Saskatchewan or Lynn Ijake, Manitoba.
