New Hook Shots: Atlantic Salmon in Legendary Waters

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of spending three days on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada. Since I began fly fishing, I vowed to one day pull an Atlantic salmon from this hallowed river where anglers like Lee Wulff honed their craft. Atlantics are hailed as the "king of all gamefish," and they are one of the first species to be seriously pursued by fly anglers in the early days of the sport. But I found out quickly that bucket list fish don't come easy. Of course, I've never been one to complain about working hard on the water. There is so much history and tradition on the Miramichi that just being there is as rewarding as hooking the fish. I'm sure you fish places like that, too. I hope you enjoy the show, and I hope everyone keeps their lines tight over the long weekend. - JC
