Although we (Nathan) forgot the eggs for breakfast, we substituted freshly caught-like 20 minutes ago!-lake trout to go with the bacon. It was hard but we made the best of a (not so dire) meal catastrophe! With great weather, calm lakes, no bugs and 2 lake trout, I was, as the saying goes, hooked on spring trout fishing in Algonquin Park!
The plan was to have the canoes loaded and ready to glide off the beach at the Round Lake access point to Algonquin by 7 AM, when the Park office opened. Amazingly enough, we did it, and we were on the water no later than a quarter after.
Anyways, Ben was soloing in a little 14 foot cedar strip canoe, Darren and Cliff were in Darren's lightweight-38lbs!-kevlar canoe, and Nathan and I were in the cedar strip prospector. Both cedar strips were made by Nathan, and are source of pride not just for Nathan but for anyone paddling in them, since many people compliment the craftsmanship and beauty of these vessels.
