Another Season – #14

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.

. . . land, water and sky . . .

. . . land, water and sky . . .

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.

      Thanks, Bill. Have a good summer. If you ever get up to camp, I’ll teach you how to do some REAL fishing with a fly (and maybe how to type as well!!!!) Have a great summer!

    Robin, Ann and I are looking forward to coming back for our 5th consecutive visit in July. Can’t wait to see Francis, Kev and the rest of the staff this year. Are there any new additions to the guide staff? See you July 8th.

      Hi Jim and Ann, I’m sitting at Kev and Frances’s house in Wabush waiting for the fog to clear before flying into camp. We have had a couple of those drizzly Labrador days that are so great for fishing, but really bad for flying VFR. We have two new guides this summer. As you know, Uncle Ned retired after 2010 and Cliff cannot come this summer due to the sudden and recent loss of his mother and with his father terminally ill. Very sad and we’re all wishing the best for Cliff and the Randell family.

      We can hardly wait to see you both step off the float plane. I suspect that 2011 will be some kind of season and folks like you assure it.

      Safe Travels!
