CLASS FLY-FISHING, GOURMET MEALS, NAKED WOMEN AND NO
TELEPHONES! It was the perfect opportunity for this
dancer to take the bump-n-grind out of the city and
into the WILD! So, a group of fishing buddies headed
north, rightly expecting some "T&A" with their R&R.
As a lover of pulling in the big ones and "rough riding"
in the great outdoors, I was chosen to be their thigh-high
booted guide. And what an ideal setting. MacKenzie Trail
Lodge is so remote that it's only accessible by plane.
Over 30 lakes and rivers provide an abundance of native
trout. In just five hours from Portland, we were landing
on a 3400 foot airstrip owned by the lodge. I was reeling
with anticipation (pun intended) at the thought of getting
my hands on a fast-action rod and releasing some tension.
can go on a fly-out with a guide, who will cook your
catch on an open fire lakeside. All of the other meals
are prepared fresh at the lodge, including baked goods
of up to 100 rainbows a day are common in this fishing
You may see eagles catching their dinner from the same
menu as you, or even a black bear! There are many hiking
trails for those that like to explore. The staff will
make you feel right at home, eager to provide the, "Fishing
Experience of a Lifetime."
The five days I spent at MacKenzie Trail Lodge was the
highlight of my dancing career. I danced twice a day,
after lunch and in the evening. The rest of the time
was mine to enjoy fishing, exploring, or just relaxing
with a cocktail.
I did some private shows and, a "special" thank-you
show for our host and hostess. For my final performance,
Jean and Mike dressed me from head to toe in fly-gear,
complete with a tackle box full of "toys" and a "pole"
that was just my size!
else can you get away from modern day stresses, such
as cell phones and ex-wives, and still eat a gourmet
meal, drink fine wine and get a naked lap dance every
night, after fishing all day! Nowhere, except MacKenzie
Trail Lodge! They take reservations of up to 15 people
at a time and have a staff of eight. Sounds like two
on one to me! That could make for a good time, aye?
