    Default First paddle and pole of the year

    Had our first paddle of the year yesterday on Francois Lk.
    A 20-30km section of the East end of the lake never froze this year.
    The weather was finally warm enough so we went for a sunny paddle.
    We enjoyed a lunch on the beach and practiced making fires with a Light My Fire firesteel.



    Annamarie's been cooped for a long winter.



    Headed out today for my second pole of the year.
    My brother Dave joined me for a trip on the Stellako river. It flows from Francois Lk. to Fraser Lk.
    We made it up about 3kms.
    I'm learning and liking it more each trip. It's definitely a neat way to enjoy a canoe.

    A few pics...
