Having fished at Goldsand Lake for several years, I was concerned when I discovered that commercial airlines were no longer scheduling flights to the Lynn Lake airport. If we still wanted to fish that great Walleye and Northern Pike fishery, my party of eight would have to endure two grueling days on the road and forfeit valuable fishing time.
So, I contacted Okswana Szwaluk of the Great Canadian Travel Company in Winnipeg. I have used her services several times in arranging commercial flights and trips to northern Canadian lakes. She found two charter carriers as options to the driving alternative. I chose “Wings Over Kississing” and couldn’t be happier. They booked our flights at a reasonable cost and adjusted the flight times to meet our needs. Their staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The flights were piloted by experienced, friendly, and professional pilots who made sure that our trip was safe, comfortable and enjoyable.
We caught and released lots of Walleye, five master angler Northern Pike, and were treated royally by Tom Kenton and the staff at Goldsand Lake Lodge. Our four and a half days of fishing were punctuated with gorgeous scenery, wildlife sightings, delicious meals and shore lunches, and beautiful weather. As seasoned veterans of Northern Manitoba fishing, several of us concluded that it ranked among the best fishing trips we had ever taken.
Thank you, Okswana, for, once again, coming through for us when we needed a professional travel agent.
