Mission Giant Char at Ungava Bay Nunavik

by | Jul 22, 2017 | Uncategorized

I’m on my way to Montreal today.  Tomorrow I’ll fly up to Kuujjuac, QC Canada.  Just in case you don’t know where this is (ha!) this is a town in Nunavik on Ungava Bay.  If you still need help, look at a map of Quebec and go all the way to the top.  Here is the home of Inukshuk Lodge and hopefully many huge and hungry Arctic char and not too many polar bears.


You may remember a few years ago when Granny and I were guests of my friend Paul Ostiguy at his Labrador Lodge, McKenzie River Lodge.  We hoisted in unfathomably beautiful brook trout and numerous landlock salmon.  Good news, Paul recently purchased Inukshuk Lodge and I’m headed to meet Paul there tomorrow to help him and his guides explore the areas fishing for the next seven days.  (Granny will not be on this trip)


The term “off the grid” is overused these days and I therefore try to use it as little as possible.  But Inukshuk Lodge is “off the grid” and I will not be able to post blogs until I return to civilization on July 31st.  As always, I will separately post each and every day of what should be an amazing and truly out of the ordinary adventure.


A special thanks to my friend Paul Ostiguy the proud owner of McKenzie River Lodge in Labrador and Inukshuk Lodge for bringing me along on this incredible adventure.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
