Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Fish Fear Them

Fishing at sunset last week, Dave and Mike deployed the very latest in fishing gear.

Fancy lures, deft casting, careful planning.  Mike commented that if he totalled up what he's spent on fishing gear, he could probably just purchase fish for life.  Still, it just would not be the same.

Instead of scooping something frozen in temura batter, the lads spent the evening drifting along, fingers crossed and hooks baited.

David landed a sizable bass.  The team fish with Live Release, so the fish is back in the lake.  The thrill is in the chase, after all.

Fishing is an imperfect science, which is what keeps folks coming back.

The movement of the water against the hull of the boat. The call of the loon. Wind over the fresh water, the rustle of trees... you can't buy that at the grocery store.

Nor can you purchase sunsets like this one.

Recently on CBC News it was revealed that there are doctors who are now prescribing time spent in a provincial Park to help their patients "de-stress."

We think they are on to something, but we're sad that it would take a prescription to convince people to get back to Nature.

Still, if that is what it takes... we suggest you take some time in North Muskoka, and don't bother to call anyone at all come morning... just breathe and relax.  And maybe toss a line in the water...
