The smile on a 13 year old boys face who loves the sport of fishing making his first trip to Canada. Ken Wieczorek and his son Hunter along with 6 other relatives and friends including Dan Sr. and Jr. who drove 1,650 miles from North Carolina to be here, were guests of camp this week. And what a week they had!Although Ken and some of the others are veterans of the Canadian fishing and wilderness experience-three in the group (Hunter included) were first timers. These guys had an absolutely incredible fishing trip and are already planning their return trip.

Kneeling: Ken and Hunter
I asked Hunter to describe in a word his experience. He got a very thoughtful look on his face for a few brief seconds before responding “Awesome!” His father, Ken asked him what he most liked about the fishing and Hunter responded “the pike!”
For us it is always a treat to meet new guests of camp who soon become friends and also to have an opportunity to visit with our many long-time friends of camp. As we say goodbye to our friends from week one of the 2010 season, we eagerly anticipate greeting our friends coming in for week two tomorrow.
Until the next blog-take care.
