Last week I took a well deserved ME trip. My buddy Tony and I spend a lot of time dragging they boys with us and we felt it was time to do a guy thing. We ventured back to a resort we went to a few years back called Browns Clearwater West Resort. We booked the trip at the Midwest sport show this year. We chose this resort because it is about 2 hours from Fort Francis and our time was slim. Our plan was to leave early in the morning on Friday get there around Noon and start fishing! The plan went without a hitch including crossing the border. Yes you need a passport. Look honest and organized and you wont have a problem. This trip had its fishing ups and downs and we caught our fill of Walleye, Pike and smallmouth. There were a few outing that humbled us quickly and made us remember that youre not fishing out of a barrel! We used a lot of jigs and spinners and had nothing but fun! We even opted for a portage lake which took us across two lakes and two land portages but the benefits were incredible! Enjoy the pics.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
