Ouananiche

Lac Bohier Postscript

It started with an email. Were any fly fishing club members interested in an opportunity to fish a remote part of Quebec for ouananiche (landlocked salmon) and speckled trout?

Tokaryk Rainbow

Manitoba Parkland – Part 2

Its amazing how quickly a great fishing trip gets left behind. Two weeks have gone by since we got back from fishing for large trout in Manitoba.

Fishing the Manitoba Parkland

Tweet Our spring trip to the Manitoba Parkland region has come to an end.  What a trip it was.  Eight days of fishing for trophy trout.  Over that time we fished six different lakes:   Patterson Lake Tokaryk Lake Pybus Lake Twin Lakes Persse Lake Gull Lake   The first five are associated with the […]

Getting Ready!

Tweet In less than two weeks four of us are heading to the Manitoba Parklands for a week in search of behemoth trout.  The lure of large rainbow, brown and tiger trout is one that brings some people to the region year after year.  We made our first trip to the area last September with […]

A Week Late and …..

Tweet Work has taken me to Iqaluit, Nunavut in the Canadian Arctic.  I took a short walk this afternoon to Sylvia Grinnell Territorial Park just outside town.  Here is the river by the same name.  Apparently it is a great place to fish for Arctic char.  But I am a little late.  Winter comes early […]

Winter Reading – A Growing Choice of Fly Fishing E-Zines

Currents of Belize

Tweet I came across this video about fishing life in Belize.  I’ve never been but perhaps one day.  In the meantime, the story of this video gives a great insight into the people of Belize and their lives around the fish that attract so many to their country. The pressures of development are changing the […]

Ausable River, West Branch

Tweet Last weekend we took a short trip to Lake Placid, NY. Coming from a fishing perspective, one of the best known features of the area is the Ausable River. Since this was not specifically a fishing trip, time on the water was limited. I did manage one early morning brown trout on the second […]

Pennsylvania Road Trip

Tweet Last week we took a few days and headed down to Pennsylvania.  We had a couple objectives in mind – to experience steelhead fishing on the Lake Erie tributaries and second, to revisit Lancaster County with its prevalent Amish traditions. The steelhead idea was more mine but my wife humored me.   This was all […]

More Newfoundland

Tweet I got around to processing a few more images of Newfoundland. Cull Harbour was an interesting spot.  You got to it by a narrow bridge. We spent an afternoon on a whale watching tour from Bay Bulls.  The whales didn’t disappoint.  We probably saw a dozen different whales in total.  They were in the […]
