Squaretails of Drowning River, Northern Ontario
Description: A splendid outdoor life picture. Drowning River is one of a network in northern Ontario, that drain into Hudson Bay. Starting out in canoes, we travel for three days thru picturesque rapids and beautiful rivers and over back-breaking portages until we come to our objective, the home of those game fish, the Square-tails. Here is a river full of real fighting fish waiting to be caught. How they can fight! What skill we need to work them up to the landing net! But when the zestf ul day is done and we return to camp and feast on Square-tails what a real tang there is to living.
