To quote the great John Muir, “the clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” That is exactly where I am headed for an adventure of camping, hiking, exploring and of course fishing. Nothing refreshes the soul and heals the heart like a record pike!

Some of the greatest fishing I have ever experienced has been up in Canada, landing huge salmon while battling the sea lions. Getting to the remote region by helicopter, and then gladly being fogged in for three extra days so I could real in halibut weighing as much as myself. The most difficult trek I have endured was up through the Himalayas, due to several broken ribs at the beginning of the journey. However, Kilimanjaro tops the most magnificent adventure of endurance so far.
