Newfoundland Atlantic Salmon
The majesty of Canada is in full display in this episode of The New Fly Fisher, as host Colin Mckeown goes fishing for Atlantic Salmon in stunning Newfoundland. Tuckamore Lodge is situated in some of the most beautiful scenery the world has to offer. Regardless of fish, Newfoundland draws tourists from around the world to see its Whales, Dolphins, Foxes, Caribou and other plentiful wildlife. It’s June and the water levels are very low, so guide Steven Flynn takes Colin to a narrow channel of the Main Brook where Salmon are gathered in mindboggling numbers. Fish in these quantities provide the potential for a Salmon fisherman’s dream, a big fresh fish on a dry fly in clear water. After some incredible early morning sport, Steven takes Colin out to sea for some traditional hand line jigging for cod, before circling the island looking for Whales. Whether you’re a fisherman or not, Newfoundland should be on everyone’s bucket list.
