Don’t think my first try made it. Here is the 2nd attempt. Pics. sent separately.
Don and I are back safely, but wishing we were still in camp chasing the wily salmon.
After more than 20 years of fishing at Wilson’s Don Hoyt and I had one of the best days ever with both of us landing 2 salmon and a grilse each in one day. The salmon ranged from 9 to 22 lbs. and were the strongest, feistiest fish we have ever played. Having fished for Atlantic Salmon in Iceland, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and other New Brunswick rivers we keep coming back to Wilson’s year after year and hope to do so for many years to come. While salmon fishing is never predictable your pools have been the most productive and reliable waters we have ever fished. Not only that, but the guides are the best, the dining is wonderful and the accommodations are comfortable and scenic. It is like coming home for Don and I.
We look forward to coming back in the fall and will always remember the July day we netted over 75 lbs. of Atlantic salmon in one day.
