Ernie And I Go "To War"..............

Ernie Nicholl, Huron Air And Outfitters owner showed up late last night, bringing 2 of our Engineers, Remy and Andy, back from his Base in Armstrong, Ontario. They had been there doing maintenance on his Beaver, C-FDPW, a machine that Ernie has owned for 19 years. Ernie and I decided to swap "lies", as he was going to "overnight", and consume some "liquid intellect", so we "dessicated" a bottle of Alberta Premium. Late in the evening, we were amazed at how good of a singer Charley Pride was, with the stereo at full volume!

Sleep happened, and early this AM we did breakfast! Then, it was back to work for 2 lifelong "Bush Rats"! Ernie also owns Trophy Fish Outposts, and after "chow", he took to the skies to return to conduct his business. Apparently, the fishing has been outstanding at his camps, with anglers landing huge trout and northerns.

Then, later in the day, I went to Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge, as ex-NHL "grinder" Kris King was going fishing with friends.

As I cranked out of Aikens Lake, the "Falls" on the Gammon River feeding Aikens Lake are just "boiling"! Posted by Hello

So, here I sit, another day done, but before I go, here are some good links again. If you like well-run, good fishing camps, here they are!

Cheers, as I "rattle" the ice in my "pickle jar"!
