My brother Todd and my nephew

8/31/08 – My brother Todd and my nephew Devin came up to Sawbill for a week of camping and fishing. They live in New Jersey and it was Devin’s first time in the Boundary Waters. Todd hadn’t been here in over 15 years and the last time he came he and his wife only caught one fish. I joined them for the first couple days and showed them a few of my favorite spots. After 6 days they came back smiling and full of fish stories, having caught dozens of fish, including the largest walleye Todd has ever caught, and Devin’s first northern pike! It is easy to see why family canoe trips can quickly become a cherished tradition. – Dave
