Early start at Valentine’s

image

Valentine lodge on the Cains is a beautiful place which I visited in 2012 and it was good to return there, albeit at the early hour of seven o’clock this morning.

The weather has warmed to 26 degrees in the day here in eastern Canada, and this has not done too much for the fishing, although Christopher did well to land an evening grilse two nights ago, held by our guide Danny in the picture below:

So Valentine’s it was this morning, which is appropriate given it’s my and Chloe’s wedding anniversary!

The fishing was quiet and I wandered into the surrounding woods, the river visible through the trees.

Later, before returning to Gray Rapids for lunch, we explored an old, abandoned fishing camp upriver. An amazingly sited place with an air of decay – which in terms of a log cabin means lots of semi -rotten timber and logs with paint peeling off.
Here are some photos:

As you can see the lines are somewhat awry (Danny said it was not too well put up in the first place), but there was no mistaking the name of the place, Millets:
