and this year’s

Trout Power 

Logan Webster's first fish!
Little Falls, NY   “I met a photographer last year who was visiting our area to participate in a Trout Power event.  We had an extensive and intriguing conversation about the goals and future of the event and the area  in general,” says Juli Webster, Logan's mom and owner of The Mustard Seed & Antiques at Stone Mill in Little Falls, NY. “Recently, a Trout Power FaceBook ad popped up and I remembered hearing about the event so I wanted to learn more” says Juli.  "Now, with Trout Power's special permission, my son Logan's fishing in the Tournament!"

"Bug Whisperer, Logan Webster"
Nature Lover.  Juli’s 8 year old son Logan is a true blue nature lover. He has always instantly fallen in love with any creature he could get his hands on.  Logan’s always had a “dead bug jar” for insects that required further study- cicadas, bees, dragonflies, beetles- whatever Logan found in his adventures. 

Logan taught himself to read after he got tired of waiting for grown-ups to identify the different species!

Last summer, while camping at Lake Durant, Logan was able to wade in the water at Lake Durant and fish unsupervised as he had taught himself to tie the knots for swivels, bait his own hook and gently remove the small Perch and Pumpkin seeds that he’d been catching.  Logan’s mom remembers him coming back to camp with a 17 inch Largemouth Bass in tow.  

Logan declared “Fishing is my life!”  and he’s gladly accepted any opportunity to catch and release fish even if only off the bridge near the front door of his Mom’s shop.  Very few days have gone by in the last year without at least a few of Logan’s casts going in some body of water.  The memory card’s full of proud catches before being released.  

Logan’s passion has inspired his dad, uncle, great-aunt and grandparents to rediscover their love of being outdoors and fishing. When the snow covers everything, Logan and his family watch the ice fisherman on Canadarago Lake.


Logan’s rituals.  Logan does a nightly reorganization of the tackle box and takes a rope to bed to practice knot tying. Logan reads every possible fish identification book from the library and watches countless YouTube videos of fishermen. 

Jeremy Wade of River Monsters is Logan’s latest role model (survivalists now took a back seat), not only because of his monstrous catches, but because of the biological studies behind them. 

Spring time brings about craw fishing, frogging and of course, fishing.  Logan continues to evolve in his fishing expertise and interest while his whole family has a blast following him around to as many New York waterways as possible. Though Logan is shy, fishermen at the shop love trading secrets with him and enjoy cluing us in on their favorite spots.  Logan’s honored and excited to be this year’s
