25 years ago Rena and I began working with my parents at Amik Lodge and Outposts. Since then we have grown into a great team who have tons of experience in the outfitting business and know how to keep our guests happy and coming back year after year. Pictured below is the first Cessna 185 that I used to camp check in.
The Outfitting business has seen a major turn over in the past year or two. Many outfitters are getting to the age where they are ready to hang it up and sell to a new owner. The flyin outfitting business is a small community and in our time with Amik Outposts there has not been many changes. There will be many new faces at the Sporthows this winter behind some well established companies booths. Amik Outposts on the other hand has not been doing many Sportshows in the past 8 years, we have been putting our dollars towards improving our cabins and equipment. Our philosophy is that it is easier to keep our guests happy so that they want to come back, not find new ones. We want to be your only Outfitter.
Whether you are a first time flyin fisherman or an experienced group of fishermen looking for a better outfitter, you can not go wrong with choosing Amik Outposts.
Here are a few things to consider when you are booking your Fishing Vacation to Canada.
Experience in the business. We have operated on the same lakes for our entire career. We have started at the bottom and worked our way through every job that needed to be done and have learned to be efficient and provide a First Class Experience to our guests.
Organization. Rena and I have taken pride in our work and want to make sure you have a great time. We look after the smallest details in all aspects of your trip right from the planning, having a well outfitted camp, the flight and the fishing. We offer assistance with many factors of your trip planning , Groceries, Bait, Beverages. Many outfitters have stopped doing these extra items, we have not.
Your Pilot. With Amik Outposts, the pilot flying you to your camp is the owner. I have been flying this area of Canada since I was 19 years old and strive to make every flight the smoothest flying experience of your life.
The Fishing. Having been in the business for a long time we know how our fishing compares to the rest of Canada. We can honestly say that our fishing is World Class. We have had fishermen who have fished all over the World and Canada, after fishing with us, their search for the best is over. Our Conservation policy, a healthy gene pool and a pristine environment ensures that our fishing will stay great forever. We are fortunate to be able to share this awesome renewable resource with our guests.
Comfortable Cabins. Our cabins are not fancy. They are functional and comfortable. Breathtaking views of the lake, screened in decks, new mattresses, a Sat phone for emergency use, dry boats with good solid seats and reliable motors. We do our best to ensure the small details are looked after also such as a new grill every 2 seasons, having 2 refrigerators at each camp and many other small items to make sure your trip is uneventful and enjoyable.
When you are researching outfitters for your next Fishing Vacation look at the map of Ontario and have a look where the outfitters are located. If you look up into the far Northwest corner of Ontario away from everyone else. That is where you will find us.
