Hello, Nice place
 
Just a short note to say hello.

I found this forum a bit by accident and browsed around some. Like the Atlantic Salmon Forum very much. The scope and depth of the forums is also nice.

I'm up in central Quebec (about 5 hours from Montreal or 3 hours from Quebec City).

Originally from British Columbia (Kamloops Region), I've been in Quebec since 1988. I've been fly fishing most of my life, but really only got into it in the last 15 years.

My home waters are on the Ste-Marguerite River in the Saguenay. (you can link to my home waters from my personal page).
Me and the family love this river 'cause we can go after Salmo Salar, Searun Brookies, peace 'n quiet, all 45 minutes from the house.

I've been part time guiding on the river for several years ever since the pro guide service folded. My real job is as a forestry engineer, but that's just to pay for fishing ;)

Anyway, I don't think it's courteous to visit without saying hi, so there you are.

Welcome.

Judging by your fishing preferences, you may also want to check out speyclave.com (if you haven't already). A link to that site is available at the top of each page here on Flytalk.

DH,

Not yet. That's all I need, ... another passion to pursue. :D

The Ste-Marg isn't a really big river. Some nice lies for spey casting, but not always. Many find I'm overgunned with a 10ft rod already (but I love it).

Hey, you could be a trend setter. ;)

Welcome...my mother and relatives come from Roxton Falls, Quebec, near Acton Vale and the Black River.(Sherbrooke and Granby)... and I used to fish with my father in the lakes around La Torque( Speckled and lake trout).... in the 60's when you needed a tractor to get to the lakes and we had kerosene and Ice houses.... Went to school in Montreal for a year... but we drove north from Trois Rivere....I can still smell the Pulp mills . Can't remember the names of the lakes but they were about 18 to 20 miles west of La Torque

I've been stmping around the country side for a while in that very area. The Bostonnais River runs just north of the town of La Tuque and I fished there a while. There are some nice outfitters in the area too. Haven't been down for a few years though.

You'd be pretty suprised at the road access in the area now as the logging shows have opened up lots of areas.
