My good friend Reid Stoyberg had an amazing guide season at Plummer's Arctic Lodge located on Great Bear Lake. I believe this was Reid's 10th season there. (Where does the time go?) Reid and I talk often. He spent 9 weeks in the arctic. Reid uses his holiday time and accumulated overtime as an engineer to guide at Plummer's. This year Reid spent part of his winter and spring developing a guide manual. He then spearheaded a week of training the new guides at Plummer's. The guides overall had an amazing season and Reid's season was off the charts!
Reid's partner, Kate Daniels also works at the lodge during her summer holidays. Kate is able to get out on the water at times. I have included a day Kate got on the Sulky River. The Sulky River is teaming with grayling. Trophy grayling up to 22 inches were caught this year.
Reid and one of his guests landed a 54 pound laker this year as well as so many lakers that were 40 pounds or larger. Reid is quite fussy when he tells guests what their catch weighs. He uses a very accurate scale.
Well pictures speak volumns so take a look. Karen and I hope to be there next year. We are booked!
Plummer's Arctic Lodge is so comfortable. Washrooms and showers in every cabin.
A 45 pound laker above.
That is one outstanding laker!
Plummer's has two single engine otters for fly outs! Trips to the world famous Tree River, the Coppermine River, head waters of the Horton River, the Sulky River and their 3 out lodges on Great Bear keep their two skilled pilots busy all summer!
Kate having an outstanding day at the Sulky River!
