A little more on first aid

Posted by on Tuesday, March 15, 2011 at 7:33 am

Our fly in camps are remote.  I am surprised sometimes how fishermen forget they booked a remote fly in and somehow imagine, there is a pharmacy just around the next bend in the lake.  There maybe some nice walleye and northern hanging out around the corner but there certainly isn’t a drug store.

More trip hints

Posted by on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 8:32 am

There is not much dangerous in the woods except perhaps some inebriated partners.  Precaution and simple common sense must be taken however when on a fly in trip since help may be a long way off.  We often see fingers and other body parts impaled with fish hooks; fingers and other body parts cut with knives, the odd burn or ...read more.

Trip hints

We have a great little guest handbook on our web site. This handbook was developed over the years from having many of the same questions asked over and while helping our guests prepare for an Ignace Outposts walleye fishing adventure.

Here is a little snippet from our handbook geared to our American guests regarding travel plans to Ignace.

On the road again

Posted by on Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 9:16 pm

The suburban is packed and on the road.  We are off to sport shows and I have to ponder how I can go for a month with all our gear, clothes, office equipment and 2 sport show booths and still have less “stuff” than the average guy brings on a 7 day fly in fishing trip.

Our aircraft perform well and when operated as per the manufacturers specifications can not be beat for the job they do.  A primary goal of our company is to provide safe transportation to and from the fly in camps we operate.   To keep every one honest and the aircraft within its operating limits loads are weighed before flight.  ...read more.

Toll Booth

Posted by on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at 7:05 am

Many of our guests from the USA travel through International Falls and Fort Frances.  Recently a toll booth has been set up on Highway 11 east of Fort Frances by protesting First Nations.  The toll is $1.00.

If you are driving to Ignace from Wisconsin or through Wisconsin it is just as fast (maybe even shorter) to go through Pigeon ...read more.

Low down on potatoes

Posted by on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 at 10:15 am

So, finally our government has come to the conclusion that potatoes are not really a threat to Canada’s National security.

I have been notified by NOTO (our Tourist Outfitters’ Association) that this summer our American guests will not have to leave their potatoes at the border nor register them when they come to fish in Canada.

Do your part

Posted by on Friday, May 7, 2010 at 10:29 am

It seems that the eco friendly thing to do these days is to be a friend of the environment.  Even though I do eat the occasional granola myself and I have seen more than a few rugged individuals grab a tree while sliding down a wet slope to the lake, I really don’t have much use for tree hugging granola ...read more.
