I did both the snow mobile tour and the dog sledding and both were outstanding! Derek was so patient and gave clear instructions for using the snow mobile. He talked about the lake and its history and we even got hot chocolate on the mountain! Nicolas and his pup Yuma were my guides for dog sledding and they were both incredible! It was amazing to work as a team with the dogs and get to see so much of the forest! I will be telling everyone for a long time that they need these experiences in their lives!
A group of 5 Finnish guys flew from Helsinki to Whitehorse where we met up with our Canadian buddy from Toronto. From the moment we landed till we left, we were taken care of by Bernard and Amanda. The hospitality was amazing. It felt much more like dealing with friends then doing business with a stranger.
We spent 6 nights at lake Coughlan. The fishing is absolutely perfect as is the whole setup. The cabin had everything we needed and more. For us Finns there was a sauna and the possiblity to swim in the 5C lake :) There was a lot of wildlife and possibilities to hike or canoe. Bernard gave us just enough tips to get us going but not too much so that we had the chance to learn on our own.
The best part of the week was that my phone was mainly turned off the whole week. I didn't even have a watch. The only reason to follow time was to make sure you are on the lake when the sun sets because thats when the best fishing was done..
My daughter Jaime and I spent an incredible day with Steve Hahn, fly fishing guide, story teller and all around great person. We loaded up his boat with gear, lunch, cameras and enthusiasm and we headed out on the Kathleen River. We were blessed with good weather, but it really wouldn't have mattered. It was the entire experience that was brilliant. We caught fish - rainbow, steelies and I think J got a grayling - and that was outstanding. But Steve provides more than just fishing. He shared stories of the geologic history of the river and the environment around it. We saw eagles, kingfishers, and mergansers galore. And a lunch spread with HOT COFFEE that was to die for!
If you want the best in guiding, with someone who provides an experience, not just a fishing trip, book a trip with Steve.
