2020 Newsletter

June 03, 2020

Dear Sportsmen,

Our 2020 Season has to be unfortunately cancelled due to restrictions in Nunavut and the world over the corona virus(COVID 19). We hope that allof our guests and freinds we have met over the years are safe and staying healthy. Dawn and I are dissapointed that we will not be seeing all of you this summer. We have fond memories of everyone that we cherish and look forward to seeing you all again in the 2021 season in Canada's unspoiled arctic. Dawn and I will not be attending any of the sportshows this winter. Our fishing packages allow our guests to experience the wonders of the Arctic from our full service lodge, 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle. We will again be offering our 8 guests per week seven nights and six days of fishing. All you need is your fishing or hunting gear, and your dreams! Our bookings have been fantastic over the past few years with both 2020 sold out and 2021 sold out. As we cannot open this summer we are rescheduling all our guests into the following year. 2020 guests will move to the equivalent week in 2021 and the guests booked for 2021 will be rescheduled into the similar weeks in 2022.

Arctic Char and Lake Trout Fishing Trips

Bring your family and friends for an unparalled arctic fishing adventure. Flyouts each day to remote areas add to the never ending excitment. We have dozens of lakes and rivers available to us teaming with Arctic Char or Lake Trout. Imagine dropping in on a lake and fishing in an area that has never seen a lure or fly from a sportfisherman. We hope you will include us in your future fishing or fly-fishing adventure travel plans.

In addition to fishing our guests have the opportunity to take in some of the natural beauty of the canadian arctic. You will see Muskox in the wild as well as Arctic Island Caribou, Arctic Foxes, sometimes the big Arctic Wolf and occasionally a Barren Ground Grizzly and Polar Bear from the air. The Island is a nesting area for many of the birds that migrate to the arctic each year. Tundra Swans, Snowy Owls, Jaegers and the Yellow Billed Loon are common sights.

If fishing is not your thing or you want a break from the rod and reel we can arrange for sightseeing tours and hikes to view and photograph the amazing flora and fauna of Victoria Island. What better way to enjoy time in the outdoors than with your family. Bring you wife and kids with you on an adventure they will never forget.

Muskox and Caribou Hunting Trips

We still are on hold for muskox and caribou due to the decrease in the population.
