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. more.

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 more.


Someone has to do it.

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 more.


It has begun

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. 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 more.
