This is Derek. You know what the greatest ambition of his life is? He wants to be a famous chef. He’s known that this is what he wants to do since he was four years old, when he helped his mom make Christmas cookies for the first time.
After producing his first tray of cookies, Derek was deeply impressed by this magic phenomenon of converting simple products into beautiful dishes. His mom taught him something new every day, and by the time he turned seven, he could already cook a simple breakfast for the whole family on his own. While all of his friends were playing football or listening to music, Derek was experimenting in the kitchen. Derek went to see his dad and told him that he wanted to take up cooking classes.
“Whaaaaaat?! Are you kidding me? Cooking classes?! - dad said.
“If this is about money,” Derek responded in an attempt to placate him, “I have some pocket money saved up, so I can contribute… Dad, this is my dream! I want to become a chef!” It was then that he noticed that his dad was slowly becoming red with anger.
Derek felt devastated. He went to his mom for support and explained the situation. She was very understanding and said he could take the course while she discussed the matter with his father. When he started his classes, Derek felt ecstatic to learn all the tricks and methods that were his first steps towards his dream of becoming a professional chef. His dad seemed to calm down a bit; maybe it was just that he couldn’t do anything about it or that his mother’s negotiating had helped.
Derek hadn’t realized what was actually going inside his head. He’d decided to sabotage his own son. Once, Derek was making a simple chocolate cream sponge cake. He was supposed to bring it to class and let everyone try it. There he was getting it ready, all the ingredients tasted fine, he had just made the cream and left it to cool down a little when his dad came to the kitchen and asked Derek to help his mom do the laundry. When he came back from the basement, he finished his cake, putting the layers together with the cream and covering it with fondant and frosting. When he went to his class, Derek was looking forward to receiving top marks, as he was sure that the cake was perfect. His teacher cut a slice and took a bite. Derek was waiting for his smile, but instead saw a strange expression of incomprehension appear on his face. His heart sank. “What’s wrong?” he asked in a defeated tone. “How could you have mistaken sugar for salt? The cream is salty!”
Derek couldn’t understand how this could have happened. He’d tasted everything the previous night. Then suddenly it occurred to him that it had been his dad who’d been left alone in the kitchen with his cake. How could he!? He decided to face him like a man, asking him directly: He appeared to be ashamed, and admitted it. Derek was angry as hell. He sighed, and said: “Son, I need to tell you something. Sit down.” He went out of the room and brought back an old photo album Derek had never seen before.
He opened it, and Derek’s jaw dropped. There he was, his dad as a teenager in a fancy glittery suit dancing with a suntanned teenage girl. “I’ve never showed this to anyone. This is an old and painful story for me. No one knows it, so please keep it a secret. I used to love dancing and I was really good at it. I took up classes when I was about your age and even took part in several competitions, until one day, I don’t know how but my classmates found out about it. Can you imagine the reaction?” “No.” Derek was puzzled. “They started mocking me, and told me dancing was for girls! They treated me horribly, and in the end I had to give up. But they remembered it, and made my life hell till the very end of school! I know how this finishes so I wanted to protect you!” “But dad, my classmates already know and they think it’s cool! Especially after I brought my homemade muffins to school.” His father seemed lost at this news, and opened then closed his mouth in astonishment. “But would you still like to dance?” Derek asked. “Yes, but keep it quiet! Not even mom knows. Then I guess it’s ok if you don’t have any problems at school. Off you go!” He seemed pretty embarrassed by his sudden confession, but that still didn’t put Derek off cooking. And he thought up a plan.
Derek had a chat with his mom the next day about the secret his dad had been keeping from her. She gave him a sly smile and said nothing. But he soon found out that his parents were taking up tango classes! Derek cooked them supper for the first evening after their class, and waited excitedly for them. When they came in, his dad gave him a warm hug and hissed “Traitor!” straight into his ear. But he didn’t look sad at all as Derek gave him a sly wink.

F or 25 years we have provided deluxe wilderness outpost fishing trips from our Armstrong location into beautiful Wabakimi Provincial Park and surrounding lakes.
Yes, we take you where the fishing is extraordinary , but there is more than fishing. Yearly family gatherings sharing a wilderness experience in comfort. Father - son (or daughter) bonding trips or Husband and wife celebrating a second honeymoon with the added spectacular outpost fishing or `the buddy trips where the tall tales get taller.
Its a big time stress reliever! . how do you think about anything else when you are fighting a fish?
Greg and I had a great week. we caught over 1000 walleye. There were well over 200 in the slot size (>18"). This is the most large walleye that have ever been caught on a trip to whiteclay for me. The slot size protection is working. It seems that each trip has more large fish being caught. Our largest northern was 43". It was caught on a jig while walleye fishing.
Greg and I sent see what you missed letters to about a dozen folks. Hope that translates into a large group for next June. . Fran and I are looking forward to the August fishing trip .

Received your card. Congratulations on 25 Years! We speak often about the great times we had at Ogoki! A Tribute to you both!
Best Regards, Rich Craddock.
What a nice surprise to find your post card in my mail yesterday. Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything; much less a business like yours with all the uncertainties of weather, exchange-rates, two-country economies, etc. There is a reason why your business has survived and (hopefully) thrived. you do the wilderness fishing experience better than anyone in the outdoor sport vacation business.
Dear Judy and Paul,
Congratulations on 25 years. I have many fond memories of my time with Jack at Ogoki. Hope all is well with you.
. . . Nicole will take you on a guided tour!
This website will take you every step of the way for a worry free fishing vacation!
Let us introduce ourselves; Judy & Paul Boucher and family. Weve been doing this for 25 years and have learned a thing or two on how to take the worry out of the wilderness experience. Our staff will help you with anything you may not understand or solve any mechanical glitch right away. In short: we treat you like family!
Just a note to let you know our recent fishing junket to your Mojikit South Outpost.
Ive been coming to Armstrong area since 1972 and have probably flown in with 6-7 different outfitters over the years to numerous outposts. Your Mojikit South camp is clearly the nicest camp I have been to. The cabin is beautiful and roomy. Great kitchen and dining area. Beautiful screened in deck and outside porch overlooking the channel. Large chest freezer and a frig that actually keeps things cold. Screened in fishing cleaning house with running water. Bedrooms that are roomy. Vaulted ceiling the the cabin is a plus. The cabin is centrally located to both the lake and the Ogoki Reservoir.
The boats are the best that Ive ever experienced at an outpost. The inside bottoms consist of flat carpeted panels. easy to get in and out of. 1st time Ive fished an outpost with "dry" feet. The boats had comfortable swivel seats and 15 & 20 hp 4-stroke engines that worked great.
We will definitely be back. Everything about Ogoki Frontier was quality. My two grandchildren had the time of their lives, as did the other 2 members of our party. Thanks for the memories.
