Together with my trusty administrator Kris, of Fish On Line Canada fame, we have many new and interesting things planned for the Cabin 14 web-site in the coming months.
To begin with we will be adding a number of new and updated stories from the Cabin 14 book series along with numerous photographs from various “exotic” fishing locations that I have traveled to throughout Ontario, Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Alaska.
All of the items that are available for sale through our store will be reduced in price with the proceeds from all sales now going to the Alaskan Malamute Help League. So if you are in the market for a new screen saver that is a bit different or want to read about some of the “exotic” places and characters I have fished with, while supporting a good cause, take a look through the store.
And speaking of Alaskan Malamutes, my wife and I just happen to have two of them, Deline (pronounced DEL-in-aye) and Tikhaia, who will be appearing regularly in our Petersen Lake segment. Petersen Lake is a little something we purchased last year as our “leave the world behind” retreat. The lake is part of the Namewaminikan River system in North Western Ontario – but more on Petersen in future postings.
I will also be doing some product reviews, starting with the Minn Kota iPilot system. If this wireless, GPS enabled trolling motor enhancement works as well as they claim, it will be a worthwhile investment for those of us who work along exposed weed lines and fish underwater structure particularly when conditions require precise presentation and speed control.
Another regular feature will be excerpts from my personal Field Journal. I will be sharing some of my more interesting experiences form 2009 with you and with trips to the Temagami area, Esnagami Lake, Petersen Lake, Great Bear Lake and the Coppermine River in Nunavut already in the books for 2010, there should be plenty of interesting stories and photographs to come.
Have you ever had to cook for ten or more hungry guys? Well, I have been doing it for the inmates of Cabin 14 for over thirty years. The Cabin 14 Cook Book will soon be available for purchase and contains some great recipes, hints and shortcuts that will help you survive in the event you draw the short straw and get the job of being camp cook. Watch for monthly recipe postings as well.
As you can see there is lots going on in and around Cabin 14, so please stay tuned and drop us a line whenever you have a moment, because we would really like to hear from you.
