Plummer’s Arctic Lodges and the Call of the Wild

Plummer’s Arctic Lodges and the Call of the Wild

Adventure novelist Jack London, one of my favorites, wrote “The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” Those words resonate with my spirit, and one of my goals is to take one major fishing excursion each year. In doing so a lifetime of treasured memories is obtained.

I also strive for quality when pursuing these endeavors. A trip to Plummer’s Lodges in Northwest Territories Canada is expensive.  But rather than taking an average trip, I prefer to go further and devote a little more of my hard-earned money on a truly special adventure. London has it right, and I too can’t resist ‘The Call of the Wild.'

“You can check it out in the IGFA book of world record fish: Plummer’s on Great Bear Lake is the place for world-record Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, and Arctic Char. Anglers fishing from Plummer’s hold the all-tackle world records for these three species. So too are all the line-class records for Arctic Grayling and seven out of ten for Lake Trout. Big fish are common in the waters surrounding the lodges that Chummy Plummer runs on the fringe of the Arctic Circle.” – North America’s Greatest Fishing Lodges
