Early Season Labrador
Colin Mckeown is joined by his friend Richard Smith for this episode of The New Fly Fisher, as they go deep into the rugged wilds of Labrador, Canada to fish for Brook Trout, Lake Trout and Pike on the Mckenzie River. It’s early June and while the water may be cold, the fishing is certainly red hot. Being too early for hatches, the pair opt for big streamer and mouse patterns to tempt the aggressive, predatory Lake Trout that the river is famous for. After guides Ettienne Marier and Jean-Paul Desjardins put Colin and Richard onto some incredible Trout, as well as some big bonus Pike, Colin hooks into a serious calibre of laker.
