I know it has been a while…and I have no excuse. But in 3 WEEKS…yes people 3 WEEKS…I am heading to Canada for my first big fishing trip of the year!!
My husband, father-in-law, sister-in-law, and myself are heading up to Manitoba to fish for some BIG, MEAN northern pike. Last year, my husband caught the biggest fish and it was in the 42-43 inch range. However, this year, I am primed to kick his a**…all in good fun, of course!!
Each trip, we have beads for the person who catches the biggest fish of the trip. We pass them around as each of us catches a bigger fish than the last. It is quite an exciting tradition!!! This year I am super excited to win those beads…I haven’t before and I can feel it…this is MY year!!
I usually start packing a couple of weeks before the trip to ensure that I do not forget anything important. We fly in to the lodge and so if we forget it…TOO BAD. That sucks…let me tell you. Last year, one of our members forgot his jeans…we laughed but it sucked
This year we are starting our fishing trip season at Lake Waskiaowaka with the fine folks at Dunlops Fly-In Fishing Lodge. You all can expect a great review upon my return. If they have internet…I will blog a few times if I can. I try to stay away from the computer though on trips as it takes away from the true feelings of Canada.
The site for the Lodge is http://dunlopfishing.ca/site/. I encourage you all to visit there to see what an absolutely lucky girl I am. I am so excited…I CAN’T WAIT!!!!
