Thanks Charlie - our Gaspe trip really worked out well, despite the shocking lack of quality Martinis and freshly-barbequed Hot Dogs at the Fort Ramsay.

Fall steelheading EH??? This sounds great! Steelhead fishing is very relaxing for me, as I never actually hook a fish. I watch Axe drag them in, and practice my spey casting.

I find it to be easy fishing - totally undisturbed by annoying strikes.

A quick report (second hand) from the Humber River in Newfoundland - a couple of our buddies have just started their trip on this great river. I think they are fishing below Big Falls in the Deer Lake area.

My second-hand sources say that the Humber is low and fish are stacked up in relatively few spots. One friend had a great first day - 3 hookups, 2 fish to the net! I assume that they were grilse, but my contact did not say.

Atlantic Salmon everywhere - GREAT!!!

Nice mid-season count on the York, EH? I think I saw a monster in White House with a hook scar from Brian's fly!

Take care!

Jim
