Opening day in Newfoundland brought Dave Greenwood, Mike Crosby, and myself a few fish.  We had a great time fishing in and around the Bay St. George Rivers.

“River Talk” by Mike Crosby

“River Talk” is a compilation of tales and tips that could only stem from a lifetime of fishing on the river.  Mike Crosby has spent more than 35 salmon seasons wandering Atlantic Canada and the Gaspe Coast of Quebec. He is known amongst friends, family and colleagues as “The Legend”.   If you would like to purchase a copy for your fishing friends or clients, River Talk is available at

Southern Labrador, 2008

A few pictures of summer Atlantic Salmon fishing on Southern Labrador rivers.  On route to Labrador, we stopped and fished the Northern Peninsula of NFLD.  In Labrador, we fished on the Saint Mary’s River but spent the majority of our time on the Pinware.  Dov and Adam joined Dave Greenwood and I for their first time salmon fishing.  Adam is from the BIG Apple New York and has never experienced “culture” like Southern Labrador before.  We have quite the story to tell when a bear broke into our camp during the night while we were all asleep.

Casting for Recovery

Casting for Recovery provides fly fishing retreats coast to coast in Canada. Their retreats are specifically designed for women who have or have had breast cancer.  Kathryn Maroun organized a rip for a group of ladies to come try their hand at fishing for Atlantic Salmon on the Margaree River, Cape Breton.  A group of volunteers took the ladies to the River.

Here are some shots from our adventures to Labrador’s, Pinware River.  For 6 years, we owned and operated a fishing camp there called the Chute Pool Lodge.  This was our first year of operation.  The Pinware is a renowned, rough and tough wilderness salmon river.
