For many avid anglers, going on a fly-in fishing trip is one of the top items on their bucket list - and for good reason. If you live in an urban area, the sheer scale of the wilderness in Ontario's Sunset Country is hard to appreciate and the number of lakes we have - 70,000 - is mind-boggling to most people. From the air, these lakes look like diamonds set against an emerald green background of pine trees surrounded by the craggy rock outcrops of the rugged Canadian Shield. As you fly over the landscape, the one thing you'll notice is that most of the hundreds of lakes you pass over have no roads going in or out of them.
That's right, the only way you can get to most of the lakes in Sunset Country is by airplane (or with a canoe). All those lakes just sitting there waiting for you to reach them and try your luck fishing. The good news is these lakes have almost no fishing pressure so luck really isn't required. A fly-in fishing trip offers you the opportunity to "own" one of these Canadian lakes for a week, just you, your fishing party and a cabin in the wilderness. The boats are all gassed up and ready to go and as you land on your chosen lake for the first time, the excitement and anticipation of the week ahead of you is almost impossible to contain. This is the mystique of a Canadian fly-in fishing experience - a trip of a lifetime that will live up to your expectations - and more.
