I’m an Arctic Grayling fly fishing fanatic. For a long time I had a goal to find a place where I could catch near record-size grayling – and lots of them. A chance check of Great Slave Lake fishing lodges on the internet lead me to plan, save for and sign-up for an entire week of catching very large grayling. My destination was the Frontier Fishing Lodge on the eastern arm of Great Slave Lake. The trip took place in early July 2012. The accommodations, food, staff and owners were all wonderful. Grayling were hungry and would take just about any wet or dry fly, but more and larger fish were caught on size 14 tan caddis dry flies. I caught a 23 inch grayling (my best ever) and dozens of these beautiful fish from 16 to 22 inches EVERY DAY! I would do nearly anything to be able to go back and do it all again.
