I think I have actually met your friend.  Does he make bamboo rods?

Yep. Well, he did at one time. I think he's slowed down on that for a while.

I would love to go back and do a day or two fly-in to some of the more remote lakes.

So you can only take one case of beer per person into Canada or can you take more if you pay a tariff? I remember Canadian lager as particularly shitty.

Yea, I should have been more specific. You can take one case per person without paying a duty, then anything over that you have to pay a duty. By the time you do that, it's probably cheaper just to buy it in Canada. The OV tasted like Coors, and the Carling was like Natty Light. A 12pk of both cost me $40. Beer ain't cheap where we were, even if it's cheap beer!

BTW, My son is north of there, stationed in Bissett (4 hours by car) doing fly-in trips... d:b

ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Don't you bring Kokanee into this.

Oh I'll say it, Kokanee is a really shitty beer & falls right in with Moosehead, Molson, Labatt's and the rest.

ALTB, again - hell of a trip and let us know if your friend is taking new friend aps.

It is also illegal to possess or consume  ANY alcohol in a boat in Ontario and there is a pretty hefty fine associated with getting caught. I like to drink some beer while fishing (a lot of i'm not driving the boat - a few if I am) and therefore I will never go to anything but a super remote lake up there where the chance of getting caught is low.

Another alternative are the border lakes around Voyageurs national park, LOW, and the BWCA- you can stay on the US side and have similar fishing.

Here is the outfitter we use more often than not...

I think we've tried every single outfitter between fort frances, kenora, & Dryden.
These people are the best.  Very nice people.  Private lakes.  Good boats.  Fantastic Cabins.  Great pilots.
Flea is not the best bassist of all time.

Look at my broke ass talkin about guide services & shit.

In truth, the last time I went was about 5 years ago.  Got a bonus at work and blew it all on the trip.
My dad & his buds go every year like a pilgrimage to mecca.

I actually came across that outfitter researching possible trips next summer. Kay lake look amazing! In the end we decided to go back to a drive in outfitter off Voyageurs Park  due to costs. One day!
