Finally!

Posted by on Monday, August 23, 2010 at 8:29 am

Until Thursday last week Karen and I had not had a chance to go fishing.  It is hard to believe that running one of the finest fly in fishing businesses in Canada, we don’t get much chance to enjoy the resources ourselves.  This summer has been a little more work for us with less staff to counteract world economic factors.

The reason some work

Posted by on Friday, July 23, 2010 at 6:30 am

Bill has “sort of” retired – the way most Doctors do. He still does some assisting in the operating room now and then.

You never know when the urge to go fishing over takes the urge to work and a little extra cash doesn’t hurt in facilitating the fishing trip.

Glad you enjoyed this trip Bill.  We ...read more.

Someone has to do it.

Posted by on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at 6:35 am

So far this summer I have not been able to get a fishing line in the water myself.  This is certainly not the business for anyone who thinks running a successful fly in fishing operation means fishing all day.

But… being the father of a successful outfitter does have its perks. 

Somehow my dad has managed  another few ...read more.

A “little” teaser from last summer

Posted by on Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 8:37 am

Who ever said fishing is slow in mid summer?  As we are beginning our 2010 season, I received this picture and note from a guest who visited Metionga Lake last July.

“Just wanted to pass along a picture of the 45" Northern I caught in July 2009 on Lake Metionga. We had a great week of fishing in spite of ...read more.

It has begun

Posted by on Friday, May 14, 2010 at 8:46 am

The weather here is unpredictable except when it comes to our opening.  While our weather forecasters try to tell us that temperatures will be 1 degree warmer in 50 years, they have a dismal record of predicting 24 hours in advance. 

I can forecast however with remarkable accuracy that our first day of the season will be lousy weather.  ...read more.

Sure sign of the season start

Posted by on Sunday, May 9, 2010 at 6:38 am

In the spring we look forward to signs which indicate our season is about to begin. 

Ice out, the return of squawking seagulls, the lonely cry of the loon, long work days, aircraft at the dock and the list goes on.  The surest sign we are about to venture into another season is the return of John and his ...read more.

A change in the regs

Posted by on Sunday, February 14, 2010 at 6:02 pm

Ontario has re-organized its fishing regulation areas from divisions to zones.  M etionga Lake falls within Zone 6 .  It is the only one of our lakes to be in this new Zone.  The regulations for this zone have changed regarding Northern Pike.  The new regulation has done away with the slot size restriction.  The no-keep between 27 inches and 36 inches is no longer ...read more.
