#9 Ice Fishing

I just returned from 3 days in Callander, Ontario, living on the ice of Lake Nipissing in support of a feature for Canadian Geographic‘s November Travel Issue. Not sure quite what to expect.

 I arrived and met the writer, Bruce Gillespie, and our hosts, Scott, Christine and Tim at Glen Echo Cottages. A friend who grew up in North Bay confirmed that Glen Echo was THE place to experience ice fishing. 

Ok, first off, I am an absolute rookie fisherman! Our hosts went above board to bring us to the fish and make sure we landed some dinner. Bruce, the writer, and a friend, Greg, did most of the fishing and I spent most of my time behind the camera. Bruce and Greg had good luck and we feasted on some delicious pike.

A big thank-you to Scott, Christine and Tim at Glen Echo! Sorry, this is a pictureless post – Can Geo has first rights to use of the photos. Stay tuned for the November issue!

Tomorrow –  I should have more hockey pictures!
