Arrowhead Journey

Been following with interest. Quite an adventure.
Hey Ferd, I caught a northen below Bond Falls on a Pearl Zonker and 5x tippet. Wasn't expecting a pike. He was little guy 24".
Zonkers are now favored over wooly buggers.

Very close encounters with a cougar and a huge 500# black bear while setting up camp.:eek: Check the website for the exciting story as told by Erik in his journal.
 
Beaver,
I really appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
A couple of Septembers ago, Amy and I went ricing with Eric through the school in Grand Marais.
What caught my attention with Eric is that he lives off the grid, builds bark canoes and stands ready for when it hits the fan.
