Camp Louis Jolliet
Hooké visits the James Bay region of north-eastern Canada to fish with the Cree community for Speckled Trout and Pike on the fly. Derek joins his friend Fred at camp Louis-Jolliet on the banks of Lake Mistassini; a camp of indigenous anglers and hunters living off the land. The crew explore the vast network of lakes and rivers by boat, but unusually high waters have scattered the fish throughout the smaller waters in the forest. A few small Trout and a big Caribou provide dinner for the night, an opportunity for the anglers to learn the self-sustaining ways of the tribe. The next day, guide Jason boats to a small bay known as wolf portage. Casting big surface lures tight to the bank, the water soon erupts with big, dark northern Pike, a hard fight on light fly tackle. Fred is dragged overboard in excitement, but soon finds himself hooked into the massive Trout they were looking for.
