Longue Pool? I had a fish there wrap my line around a rock at the top (not the leader), but eventually I got it off and landed the fish. 13 lb Rio Fluoroflex Plus, 2 releases for each of us.

I lost a nice fish on Cascapedia 2 weeks ago on 18 lb Stroft Fluoro. The guide insisted on putting on a new "leader" to attach to a 0.030" fluoro permanent butt section about 6 ft long that I like...

BTW, I assume you meant that the river flows are 11 m^3/s, not that the water is 11 cm deep? I...

That's good news David! I only hope all interested parties can agree to extend the agreement past the 4th year, and that everyone abides by it. It was sad the last couple of years to see so few...

We did poorly on most of the draws this year. Didn't bother on the Grand Cascapedia this year, since I have not heard of any resolution to the First Nations netting issue on the Cascapedia estuary. ...

Prosek's Complete Angler on DVD?

Does anybody know if James Prosek's ESPN production "The Complete Angler" is available on DVD? It's the one where he fishes in England, visiting places Cotton and Walton may have fished.

I know...

Thanks for the suggestions, Pierre.

The Ste-Anne is another river I know little about, beyond rubbernecking at Cap Seize and a few other pools. It has been low, I guess. What sector(s) are...

Sharkskin field test on salmon

Well, it's pretty much the usual dry-fly-line-in-the-guides noise, but louder.

I should also have mentioned that the Sharkskin line seems to mend better than any other fly line I have tried. I...

Sharkskin field test on salmon

I spooled up an 8-wt Sharkskin to try on my 890-4 XP for a trip recently taken to Gaspé rivers. I thought I'd fish that as a single hander and my wife would fish her 790-4 XP with a Sage Performance...

It's actually a "Look a tout" ; the name is something of a joke, if I'm not mistaken.

Someone told me that the commercial ones are all made by one old fellow in his workshop. I have seen them...
