Frances Barry called me two days ago at 3:30 pm. We didn’t talk long, but the conversation was not the big deal about this particular phone call. Frances was calling from the satellite phone in the dining lodge of Main Camp. The new season has begun and with it, our first staff arrivals in camp. Frances reported that all was well in the camps – no winter damage, no bear damage, no huge piles of snow remaining on the grounds. Just a quiet northern landscape beginning to bud out into spring.
So here it begins – season # 14, 2011. We have a great line-up of guests this summer with exactly 50% returning guests and 50% new folks. We are expecting the fishing this season to perhaps even exceed our remarkable 2010! And know that we will be here in the bush – Kev, Frances and her new assistant (and sister), Judy, our guides and our lady-about-town, Dawn – all awaiting the arrival of our friends, old and new. If you’re scheduled to come this summer, get excited for as we say in the brochure, you’re in for a real treat.
Safe travels and a great summer of fishing to you all.
