This group dominated Wathaman this year.  The group who never went anywhere twice is now looking forward to year 6 AT WATHAMAN in 2023.  This group when as far south on the Pink River to as far North on Wathaman and deep into the Wathaman River.  Let's hope they left map notes for others on the Wathaman wall map in the outpost cabin.

These 2 brought their young kids and parents to Davin 36 years ago.  Last year they brought their daughter back, with her children. This year, both daughters and their families came. We hope the Davin Tradition continues for them for years to come.

Timber found a baby toy in the Fox cabin after they departed. For weeks she cared for it and carried it around.

This is Kelly from OK and his buddy Chuck. Kelly's like our brother from another country and is my always my favourite guest to cook for.  We eat good, laugh lots and drink too much.  Kelly is our only guest that Matt guides for and is one of our last guests at the end of the season.  Kelly has been waiting to catch his trophy pike...Chuck has already caught multiple trophies over the years but this was Kelly's year!  Matt took them to the furthest reaches of Wathaman for a change of scenery and because weather was cooperating.

The boys slayed the Pike on Davin & Wathaman, found a thick school of walleye up at Michael's Bay and picked up some good trout on the big lake.
