Storyline

Teenager Billy Williams and his sister Hannah live with their mother Nancy at a hunting and fishing lodge in Rainbow Country, the popular name of the North Channel area of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.

At 15, Billy is an accomplished wilderness guide, scuba diver, angler, spelunker, white-water canoeist, photographer, marksman, rock climber, skydiver and electric bass player in his rock group The Thunderbirds. Billy sports a mop of shaggy blond hair and always wears a gold mohair sweater, a GWG denim jacket, beige jeans and Kodiak boots, even on the most sweltering of summer days. Billy's best friend is Pete Gawa, a native Canadian who is equally adept at all the outdoor skills. The inseparable pair experience an endless string of adventures, thwarting the designs of jewel thieves (Mystery at Whaleback Bay), kidnappers (Pursuit Along the Aux ... Written by Denis Belton

episodes in beautiful setting
3 November 1999 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

After about 30 years I still remember some of the episodes and most of all the wonderful landscape of Ontario where it was filmed.

Maybe there are others like Dave Rowland, who know the contents better having it on tape, but I remember loving every single minute despite the fact it was low budget and possibly not an exiting story.

After 27 years of waiting to see al this I finally got into Whitefish Falls, and it feeled like the end of a long journey for me. This TV series founded a love for Canada I will surely not loose as long as I live!
