"Having dreamed of a fishing trip for years and listening to others tell stories of their trips to various places filled with trophies and troubles; I am more than happy with our experience with Reel North Outfitters. From the moment we first stepped onto the dock at Mctavish Lake (paradise) to our final day prior to leaving, our time was absolutely wonderful. You made strangers feel like one big family! The cabins are cleaned and cozy, the boats and motors worked flawlessly and the food . . . OH MY GOD . . . Amazing! Your personalities are no doubt the key ingredient to what makes Reel North Outfitters a success. I have passed on your website to a friend of mine and hope to return to McTavish real soon. I have a score to settle with the big one that got away!"

An entry taken from our guest book, written by a talented customer and very good friend. He puts into words so well, what the beauty of nature does for us all.


It's early morning on this, my last morning here in my own little sea of tranquility. One feels almost guilty as you tip-toe from your cabin, making every effort possible to not awaken your room mates. You head to the dock, your haven before your fellow McTavishians rise from their dreamless slumber.
The lake is motionless before you. A loon feeds just out from you and suddenly calls out its hauntingly beautiful melody that is the quintessential sound of the wilderness. Your mind smiles in gratitude at such a fitting goodbye. From shore, a hidden song sparrow burst forth with his own melody and your minds smile grows wider. Not a breath of wind mars the surface of the water. You see not one but two shorelines, and question which is the most beautiful of the two. Is it indeed the real or the inverted reflection, which creates the most beauty? A tie, you decide.
The water at your feet teems with life, yet is so pure as to allow you to reach down and slack your thirst with no worry as to its potability. You stare down at a small pike, sitting motionless half-in and half-out of the sun. He's doing what pike do, though I concede I know not what that truly is.
My eyes close. I relive all those moments of such importance which have taken place over the past wonderful week. I will rewind this week, this dock morning, many times over the coming year. It's one rerun I can watch over and over again.
I will relive the sounds, the sights, the smells . . . the silence. They will sustain me as I make my way in that other world in which we live. The wilderness is a balm for mans' very soul. Once it has touched you, its mark is indelible. Thank you for this.

"The best fishing trip is not to know everything about it. Stay uninformed and you'll catch a ton or is that tonne!" You have found a jewel in the north. It is evident that you love what your doing which is the reason that you are such gracious hosts."
