This past June, I joined a group of seasoned fishermen from our church for a long weekend at Shoal Lake, Manitoba. It was my first trip with any group from our church (we’re fairly new still) and it was the first time I’d been fishing since I was maybe six years old.

So to sum it up, I was more photographer than fisherman that weekend.

But it was an amazing opportunity to get away from cell coverage, to get away from the craziness of everyday life, and even to get away from electrical power in some spots.
