After a night in beautiful Saskatoon (and I'm serious about that), we hopped on the Trans-West milk run, stopping off in little north-country outposts like Prince Albert and La Ronge before touching down in tiny Stony Rapids, which rests on the bank of the Fon du Lac River between Black Lake and Lake Athabasca.
From "Stony," we hopped on Cliff Blackmur's 1962 de Havilland Otter and motored west over some stunning northwoods scenery to the Otherside River Lodge, where we'll base our fly fishing operations for the next week.
I can't wait.
Stay tuned. More to come from Blackmur's Athabasca Lodge in the days ahead.
