Hi all, been a while...

I'll be up in the Torngat National Park (Labrador) next July/August and hear that Arctic char fishing is excellent. Any first-hand hints on tackle and methods would be most appreciated.
We'll be kayaking, and our emphasis is on catching some fish to eat.
Thanks in advance

Hi Josko - Any room for an on-site collaborator? That's been on my bucket list since forever. Also, I have a name for you with first-hand experience let me get his email and get back to you.

Josko -

Turns out Jeff has a website. Check it out and drop him a line...

Thanks Juro - no luck with that website, though. Any hints on char fishing tackle and methods would be very welcome.

Char fishing was quite good (north of Nain, NL), but I was quite dismayed by the number and density of gillnets set out for char and salmon. There were cases where a gillnet was set clear across a river mouth in an attempt to intercept fish heading upstream.
Does anybody know the legal status of ocean salmon gillnetting in NL?
