Tidings of Comfort and Joy

Merry Christmas to our fishing friends all over the world.

Labrador is in a deep freeze, we are having probably the coldest December any of us old timers can remember in a long, long time. Not much snow here but I’m sure we’ll make up for it come spring and in time to replenish water levels before you arrive.

We are all looking forward here to a few down days next week, as I am sure you are as well. Then an early start to 2014 .. Mike and Lisa Sadar will be at Denver, CO (January 3, 4, 5, 2014) representing Coopers’ Minipi Lodges at the Fly Fishing Show. If you’re in the area, drop by and see them. January 24, 25 and 26th Robin and I will be in Somerset, NJ and look forward to seeing you there. We are looking forward to another good fishing year in 2014; last year the temperature and wind were such that we just had an outstanding season overall. If the weather can cooperate and not give us the extremes, we’ll do the same this coming summer. The weekly fly outs are outstanding, and we are really getting to see the best of that watershed by structuring the weekly trips this way.

Everyone is busy, and my comments will be brief. There is no better time than at the end of one year to reflect on where we are and what brings us to this point. We truly appreciate all of you that travel to Labrador for your fishing respite, for in the peace and tranquility you take home from your Labrador trip, you leave us all with great friendships and stories that warm our hearts. I wish you all the best of health in this coming year.
