Things you may not have seen before………

Fish soup made by the “Russians” out of heads and fins. It looked weird but it was actually pretty good!

This pineapple-looking floating object is either a limb from a giant amphibian, or the root system of what is commonly referred to as a lily pad. Don’t show this to the Russians, it’s probably edible.

You won’t see this too often……a swimming eagle. Perhaps having a brisk “dip” on a hot day, or just a case of not stopping before hitting the water. Either way, he / she looked a little “p-o’ed”.

Nothing like the humiliation of having to dry out on a rock when you screw up! (photography by Mike B.)

  1. Gord,

    Is that an eagle's beak that I see in the fish stew?

    If the number of Eastern European guests continues to increase, those gulls are going to go hungry. Personally, I think the diversity of your guests adds a nice dimension to discussions in the lodge and fish house.


  2. GREAT photography Mike. Especially the eagle pictures. They remind me a lot of when my cousin, John, fell out of the boat while attempting to land a Muskie. Just like the eagle, John was also humiliated and p-o'ed when he was drying off. True story. Right Gord?

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
