Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all of our readers on this side of the border.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already this time of the year again; time to sit down with friends and family to give thanks for the good fortunes of the past year as well as looking forward to the year ahead. This week’s newsletter is all about bringing in autumn by looking back on this past summer’s fishing season… One last hurrah before we accept the change in seasons and the change in temperatures as we head towards cooler weather.
Caught up in the return to normal life after a productive summer spent guiding at Wilderness North, Tyler Lancaster takes a few moments to reflect on the past few weeks at Strikers Point Lodge, the experiences he shared with some of our long time guests, and the lessons learned from his late season guiding excursions.
Continuing on with summer reflections, this week we re-welcome northern writer Gord Eliis to the Wilderness North fold. An avid outdoorsmen himself, Gord provides a unique perspective on the goings on at our remote waterways and fishing holes. His years of writing experience for CBC, and as the senior editor for the Ontario Out of Doors Magazine, will be a welcome regular edition to our e-newsletters. To catch up with Gord and learn what this past summer was like for him, be sure to read his 2013 summer summary.
For those of you ready to embrace fall and the seasonal changes it brings about, make sure you copy down Krista’s recipe this week and make the most of warmer evenings out on the patio. According to Graham’s weather report these above seasonal temperatures are likely to persist for at least a few more weeks.
Lastly, as some of us will be sitting down to celebratory dinners with family and friends to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving this long weekend, make the most of the opportunity to have everyone gathered under one roof and discuss your plans for the upcoming year. If a fly-in fishing trip is in the works than be sure to read over Meryl’s post this week as she discusses the advantages of an early booking and potential savings.
Regardless of what your upcoming plans are for 2014, I hope you and your families all have a great weekend!Take care, and, as always, it’s great to hear from you
