Well known painter, carver and guide Perry Munro describes Minipi as the ideal place for ‘journey people.’ Our web manager interviewed Munro after his stay at Anne Marie Lodge and learned about what entices him to paint the scenes of Minipi.

The Outlet deserves honourable mention, because unlike over the past few years of landed fish, this year has produced several brookies weighing three pounds or more worthy of entering in the daily entry log book.
