Don Lamont hosts charity trip, shares experience on his blog

Jul. 19, 2010


 Don during the 2006 PWT Shootout Don Lamont has been in the Outdoor industry in Manitoba for over 30 years.  Former host of"The Complete Angler" television series for 15 years, Don has worked as a professional angler in both public and private industry to promote the great outdoors in Manitoba!  He is an incredible steward of our natural resources and has become a Manitoban fishing icon. Don first visited us in 2006 during our PWT Celebrity Shootout tournament.  At the time, he was with Travel Manitoba as their outdoor products manager.  It was his first experience at Aikens, and one he would cherish for a long time until his eventual return this season! Don is currently the Provincial Youth Angling Coordinator for Fish Futures.  He is also the co-chair for Fish Winnipeg.  This past week, Don graciously hosted a trip to Aikens that had been auctioned off this winter by the Grace Hospital Foundation in Winnipeg.  The group included the two auction winners who were hosted by Don and his guest for a three day experience on Aikens Lake.  They had themselves a grand time at Aikens - filled with fish during the day, followed by laughs and stories into the night!  As Don said it: "I've been to just about every lodge all over Canada in my 30 years in the business, and Aikens is easily in the top 3."
