Fishing in Canada Again

Pure Canada
Pike on a fly - barbless catch and release.
See the other fisherman in the tree?
This is why we like kayak fishing - close to the water and the fish.

I just got home today from a great fishing trip to Canada where a plate of my tomatoes were a hit at the camp cookout night. (The garden was under the care of my wife and she did a great job with its care - Thanks Honey.) A good friend and I drove last weekend all the way to Ear Falls Ontario (700 miles)to stay for a week at Woman River Camp. We had a wonderful time! Our camp hosts, Paul, Debbie and ValerieAnn could have not been more helpful and compared to the other camps I have been to these people understand completely how to run a fish camp and make you feel at home during your stay. We caught and released over 200 Northern Pike in our week stay and the spinning poles and fly poles got a real workout. There is nothing more exciting that catching a 30in pike on a fly rod while floating in your kayak inches from the water and fish = fun, fun, fun.
Happy Gardening (fishing too)

  1. Wonderful pictures. They make me homesick. I haven't caught a pike in 15 years. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip.

  2. Hi Anon,
    Just saw your comment and thanks. we had a great time and the fishing was excellent. Both of us love to fish out of our kayaks and I am the pike fishing nut. I am toying with the idea of buying a boat that I can stand up and flyfish in...
    Happy fishing
