Pictured above is the latest and greatest product on the market to help anglers stay on their feet while fishing slippery conditions . Lucky for you , the Miramichi in the McNamee area is very easy to wade and very seldom slippery . As you can imagine this gear works great , BUT these boots tear the heck out of our cabin floors and canoes . Our beautiful 28 foot cedar strip canoes will not take this kind of abuse . These canoes are very expensive and we take great pride in keeping them in immaculate condition .
This gear will not be allowed at Wilson’s , we will be inspecting your footwear to make sure . Not to worry though folks , we have plenty of good quality Orvis felt sole waders on site that you are welcome to use .
Good news from Wilson’s! As you can see the water is about 14 inches above normal for the McNamee area and it is hovering around 50F. This is the perfect scenario leading into the summer season. There have been reports of a few fish being hooked up and down the river. Given that this season is the fifth year since the big run of 2011 we are all optimistic that 2016 will be a good year. Let’s Go Fishing!
Fishing Friends – We had some action on the Miramichi this weekend. I’m afraid that we did not manage to get one into the net, but we rolled fish, had hook-ups, and found salmon holding. Read all about it at this link to my blog.
Wilson’s is also reporting one June salmon landed in Stanleys Front and one jumper in Buttermilk. Great water and cool temps make for the perfect scenario going into mid June. Best, Keith

Hi Keith, just a quick note to show you something you might enjoy! (Or possibly your clients!) I just finished this recent oil and I am planning to have it as part of a series that focuses on the more well known classic salmon flies….I did a very small run print off this one (25) and so far the response has been outstanding!!!….anyhow I figured I would share since I know it’s a subject you and I share a common passion for, have a look below.
Hope all is well! Won’t be to long until we are back on the river again!
All my best,
“The Jock Scott” oil on panel
Available in a very small run of prints
