It is lake Simcoe. It is a good size lake, I'd say this pond is 25-30km in diameter. The lake is big enough for a small SIB!

It is one of the better fishing spots not far from my home in Toronto, Ontario.

lol, the wood reel in this part of the world is called a scarborough ,from the local port ,where many years ago they used to go big game hunting for tunny fish ,something like a big tuna could go up to about 8 /10 feet long ,though after the 2nd world war they never came back into to the area ,it was the days before multiplier reels and they needed a reel for fast line recovery ,some were up to 14 inches or more in diameter, i have a few of various sizes ,,,brilliant for cod with 100 ib line ,. and just about maintainence free ,dont think anyone makes them now ,though still popular with some locals .you only need a short rod for boat fishing around here ,
