Reed and his fishing buddies

Painter's Lodge - May 20, 2010

We just received this lovely letter from Reed Mettler, a long time Painter's Lodge guest.

In December 2009 I was talking to my youngest granddaughter, who calls me her “fishing buddy”, about our annual fishing trip to Canada and Painter’s Lodge. She wanted to know, “Why can’t we go now”? I said, “It’s the middle of winter, we can’t go now”. Abby said, “The lodge should be open year round so we can go fishing now!”

We have been coming up to Painter’s for about 18 years. We love the area, the lodge and our fishing guides. Our summer fishing trip has become a family tradition that has now been passed down to my daughter and now my granddaughters, Madison and Abigail. Thanks, Painter’s!
