Follow Our Adventure at Hawk Lake Lodge This Week

Regular readers of this blog know that I like to take one big trip each summer with my buddy/photographer, Sandy Hays. This week, we’re heading north to visit my friend Ted Putnam at Hawk Lake Lodge, the 2019 Orvis International Destination of the Year.

Our goal will be a “western Ontario Grand Slam”: smallmouth bass, northern pike, lake trout, and walleye. I have never actually seen a walleye up close, never mind landed one, so I’m strangely excited by the prospect. Plus, I am psyched to catch bug bronzebacks and pike on topwater flies. (I am bringing the Cohen Baby Mallard, which you may remember from last summer’s trip.)

I’ll be writing daily blog posts, doing Facebook lives, and posting on Instagram. Join us in all the social medias!

I’m hoping that Ted Putnam (pictured) can show us where these guys live.
