"Corbett Lake Lodge’s “claim to fame” is its international reputation for trophy trout fishing. In fact, it has been featured in many fishing magazine articles and books as a premier North American fly fishing destination resort. The lake has controlled access, is fly fishing only, and continues to be actively managed by an annual stocking program." [cited: Corbett Lake Lodge]
"For my part, I may say that before I commenced photography I did not see half the beauties in nature that I do now, and the glory and power of a precious landscape has often passed before me and left but a feeble impression on my untutored mind; but it will never be so again."~ Samuel Bourne
