Faithful Fishing: A men’s retreat for the opening of fishing season 2015

So here’s the question: Would there be eight to twelve Catholic men who would want to come together for a 4 day/3 night fishing trip at a quality exclusive rights outfitter (Dumoine Lake Cottages) for a reasonable price for the opening of the walleye season 2015?

I would be onsite as cook & chaplain. I will celebrate mass each day and anyone is welcome to participate if they choose. I will provide everything required for three square meals a day, a clean and warm cabin, and God will no doubt provide the fish. (Climate is entirely within the domain of Mother Nature though so there’s no guarantee of good weather. It’s been a long time since the Church could tell any woman what to do, so when it comes to staying warm and dry outside, it’s every man for himself.) All you would need to bring are your clothes, sleeping bag, fishing equipment, personal flotation device, personal libations and snacks.

The cabin we would be using is a two-storey log building that can comfortably sleep 8+ men. It comes equipped with two washrooms (flush toilets, showers, sinks), spacious screened in front porch, and safe clean wood and gas stoves and lighting. If the optional Provincial Park licence is purchased, spectacular spring walleye fishing is a 20-minute boat trip from base cabin. Otherwise it’s a 40-minute jaunt from home. In either case, the owner and/or guide will instruct where to find the best place to throw a hook in the water… and spending half and hour in a boat is a hell of a lot more enjoyable than putting in the same time commuting to work all winter!! Boat, motor, gas, and Quebec licence, and all applicable taxes are included (two men per 14′ aluminum boat with 15 hp Yamaha motors). There’s also offer a free internet hotspot on the lake so you can upload photos of the days catch to make your buds and bro’s turn green with envy… or to check for their emails in reply!)
