River Guides of the Miramichi

Watched carefully by their guides, anglers have been casting flies over the Miramichi River for at least a century and a half, hoping to catch the king of fish, the wily and fierce Atlantic salmon. Today's guides are living encyclopedias, with techniques for canoeing, fishing and managing "sports" passed down from generation to generation. They are also men and women

Overview

Watched carefully by their guides, anglers have been casting flies over the Miramichi River for at least a century and a half, hoping to catch the king of fish, the wily and fierce Atlantic salmon. Today's guides are living encyclopedias, with techniques for canoeing, fishing and managing "sports" passed down from generation to generation. They are also men and women of the Miramichi--strong, kind and shrewd, and proud of their knack for yarn-spinning. No one knows Miramichi fishing guides like Wayne Curtis--he has been one himself for 37 years--and no one is more skillful at enticing guides to share their best stories. In River Guides of the Miramichi, he introduces more than 20 guides. With sensitivity and humour, he outlines their lives and--mainly in their own words--repeats their yarns. All the biographies are illustrated with photos of the guides, their canoes, rods and other equipment, the fishing camps where they work, and some of the "sports" they educate and entertain so vividly.
