  1. Daylight is lasting nearly seven hours up here in Nunavut this month, but cold days dipping into the -40's with -50F windchills have been keeping me indoors a little more than I'd like. A bit stir crazy, the work and on-call hours have helped pass some time, as well as eight seasons of Entourage to watch. My room-mate and I have been talking char now and again, as he lives full-time in this place atop of Hudson Bay on South Hampton Island. Last summer he found fish, and plenty of them once he bought an ATV to get him out onto the land. There were July days the rivers were thick with returning silver fish, fresh from the ocean, and well upstream found in some of the smaller, shallow holdover lakes there were some reds to be caught come August. From town is a rough, 70 mile tundra road which stretches a ways along the coast then turns inland. Along it's route are a few rivers and lakes that connect with the sea. The hope is my friend is still working here in July and there's some work to be had for my return, but there's even more hope to explore and find char... In the meantime it all got me thinking back... again! A seed to one day fish for arctic char had been planted sometime in the late teens, early twenties. And it was these first short trips to Nunavut with Brenda which watered that seed. The Tree River is world class, holds world records, and yet I remember it seemed not quite of this world. Today I took some time to piece two pieces of two trips into one "sorta" story about fishing char the first couple times. Some inspiring landscapes and intensely beautiful fish in this look back... http://bunksoutdoorangle.com/a-nunavut-nomad-iii-tree-river-roots/ Bunk.
  2. The short version or the long? To summarize here, I spent a few weeks in Nunavut this August working in an awesome little place named Taloyoak. This tundra town in the Kitikmeot region is Canada’s furthest north settlement on our mainland. Rugged and very remote, here Arctic life and culture rule. Lucky to have free time and a fishing pole, on some days off I was able to search and find char, lake trout, caribou and more while out on the beautiful barren lands. A full story with many outdoor and fish pictures is posted at my own website if looking to view.
