June 2, 2017 - We are looking forward to starting our 2017 season very soon.  I will be heading to the Lapoile River with son, Luke, and long-time fishing buddy, Dr. Jim, on June 11.  During this 'open camp' week, we will be getting both camps ready for business - making sure things are working properly and spic 'n' span clean.  Of course, fishing will be a priority too - especially for Luke and Jim.  Helping us with camp preparations will be our long-time guide (and mechanic, tractor driver, carpenter, you name it, he does it) Mr. Alex Chant, as well as professional fishing & hunting guide, Mr. Matt Romkey. I feel very fortunate that Matt joined our staff a few years ago - he has made a world of difference!   

It's hard to believe that it was 50 years ago (in 1967) that my father, Dr. Duncan Smith, purchased the old house and land in North Bay (where our Lower Camp is now located) as well as the old log cabin next to the Camp Pool (where our main lodge is now located).  We will definitely be hoisting a drink to honour Dunc on this special year!   I'll let you know about the fishing when I return!  Scott
