(Chummy is named after his grandpa) Chummy Plummer was already up in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada since the early 1930's. He had a pool hall and other businesses in Yellowknife at the time. The pool hall was situated at the top of the hill beyond the Wildcat Café.

After visiting Taltheilei Narrows where our Great Slave Lake Lodge stands now with his father in 1938 Warren decided to take guests from Sioux Narrows to Great Slave Lake for their fishing trip of a lifetime.

This photo was taken at the original site of Plummer's Great Bear Lake Lodge at Conjuror Bay in the early 60's. The totem poles came with the move in 1967 to the Dease Arm on Bear Lake. They still mark the entrance to the main lodge.
Flight attendent greeting our guests
As Plummer's Lodges grew from a small bunkhouse at Taltheilei Narrows on Great Slave Lake to a lodge on Great Bear Lake our guests were transported from Winnipeg with a variety of aircraft throughout this years.
