Guided by Ontario’s exceptional adventure experts, Dave and Deb are learning new skills and discovering new passions. It just might be the most purely “Ontario” summer ever attempted.

FINDING THEIR RHYTHM: THE PLANET D GET HOOKED ON FLY FISHING

“We have never been big on fishing, but being ‘good Canadians’, we fished as kids. In our adult years, we’ve really not thought about picking up a rod again. But when asked if we would like to try fly fishing, we thought it might be fun to give it a try.” – The Planet D –

  1. Merci pour votre blog, l’information est très pertinente! Tenez-moi au courant des prochaines publications.

  2. Consider a canoe trip to Quetico Provincial Park. Unlike parks in southern Ontario, Quetico paddlers are not scheduled to a be on a given lake on a specific day. Simply put, you are free to travel at your own pace. Better yet, you can camp wherever you please so there is no race to get the best site!!

    All of this means that you will find yourself in a completely different state of mind as you explore lakes and portages of Quetico. The sense of freedom is truly intoxicating.
