The famed Restigouche River is the home to giant Atlantic salmon and has been attracting anglers from around the world for more than a 100 years. Host Ray Plourde journeys to this very special place to learn some techniques for swinging a fly at Glen Eden Lodge.
The New Fly Fisher is truly designed to be an educational and instructional experience. It will teach you more about entomology and ecology. How a graphite or cane rod is designed and built. Why leaders are constructed a certain way and which cast will help you to compensate for difficult water currents. To explain why large Brown Trout are spooky in relation to other species or why small streams are such precious and fragile environments. Each week guests of the series will instruct us in something new and interesting about fly-fishing.
