Making lifelong memories out on the lake
Your Dad taught you how to fish; now it's time to thank your Dad this Father's Day. Ask anyone how they learned how to fish and I'll bet the majority of them will say "My dad used to take me fishing". It's almost like a right of passage to have your dad take you out fishing when you're a child.  At the resorts and lodges in Sunset Country you'll often see three generations coming up year after year. The grandfathers started taking their kids, and then the kids started having kids of their own and they started coming up too. It's so great to see many generations heading out on the lake for a day of fishing or a week…

Manitoulin day trip rest stop with Mike
Let’s face it, Dads don’t always get the credit they deserve. When you’re young, Dad teaches you how to ride a bike or bait a hook, while dealing with all the tantrums and “boo-boos” along the way; when you're a teenager, he has to ride along with you, flinching in fear of you scratching the car, as he desperately tries to teach you to parallel-park; and once you reach adulthood and leave the nest, he gets the call in the middle of the night because your furnace stopped working, and you know Dad can fix it! Dads work hard and are sometimes under-appreciated, so give him a well-deserved break this Father’s Day, doing something he really enjoys. We asked a…

Erik Lohn at KaBeeLo Lodge
Over the last 100 years, bush flying has been used in Northern Ontario as an important resource for reaching otherwise inaccessible areas.   Many bush pilots across the region have made their living by utilizing their expertise in flying highly customized, rugged aircraft to commute people and cargo to the most isolated areas throughout the northern wilderness. It is a necessity for which many camps and lodges in the area rely to transport their guests and goods to and from their destinations. Most remote outposts each have their own personal bush pilots to whom they entrust this incredible responsibility. For one man, however, being a bush pilot is more than just a necessity. It’s a way of life.   Erik…
