The So Fly Crew hit the road and take the show up north - waaaaay up north to Esnagami Lodge in Northern Ontario. Almost exactly a year prior, the crew found themselves fishing the waters of Esnagami Lake for the first time. They returned to fish once more, explore the favourite spots, and of course see some kind, familiar faces. This episode was recorded in cabin 3, live on location after a week of catching walleye, pike and brook trout. Thanks again to Eric, Sue, Liam, Rowan and the entire staff at Esnagami Wilderness Lodge. You are very special people.
We couldn't recommend a trip to Esnagami more. You will catch hundreds of fish (no we are not exaggerating). You will see tons of wildlife. You will have a fantastic, incredible, Northern Ontario experience unlike any other. GO!

The So Fly Crew sit and chat about the Credit, the fight to save the West Credit, and with friend and photographer Aidas! Aidas really is the newest member to So Fly, having fished and explored with the crew over the last year. From chasing steelhead to looking for trout, Aidas and the crew have been fishing hard locally over the last year. But fishing with Aidas began on the trip to Tulum, where his love for fly fishing was sparked, and the rest fell into place. He's a wicked photographer and one hell of an angler.
