Good thinking

Posted by on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 6:22 am

Beer seems to be a staple for many groups on a fly in trip.  Cold beer is best in my humble opinion.

Fish Identification

Posted by on Monday, February 13, 2012 at 8:39 am

I know that many of our guests start planning their fishing trip with us early.  In fact I think some don’t stop planning from year to year.  The next year is planned before the current year is complete.  I like that way of thinking. 

Ignace Outposts (16)

Here is a link to a fish identification document.  It is time to start studying ...read more.

Many of our guests purchased an Ontario outdoors card 3 years ago.  Since these cards will have expired at the beginning of this year, it is time to renew.  Check the last two digits on your outdoors card for the year of expiry. If it reads 11, you will need a new card. Renewal notices  were sent out ...read more.

Advice – take it or leave it

Posted by on Wednesday, August 3, 2011 at 6:00 am

I have never been a fan of rubber bungee cords.  They have their uses, but they can be very dangerous.

The bungees, if they let go, which they can do at the most inopportune times, can cause damage either to a person or an object like a car.

We are often asked what the “orange net” is for when folks look into our airplane.  It is a cargo net.  We use it to secure the loads onboard to prevent shifting and to keep the exits clear. 

Everything onboard must be secure.   Inevitably even after I ask that everything is put on the scales to be ...read more.

Trip Planning – what if…

Posted by on Monday, April 18, 2011 at 10:04 am

Our camps are remote.  They offer solitude, great fishing, a little feeling of getting away from it all.  That is what makes an Ignace Outposts fishing trip so intriguing. 

One concern as our guests begin to age however, is the question of “what if… ?”  We do have two way radio communication to Ignace for emergency, but there are times we ...read more.
