This is at the opening of the harbour where the fur trade & search for the abundance of North American wealth of fish began. Louisbourg Harbour, and yes it is the North Atlantic for sure on a fairly calm day in the fall.

For some reason, they call this Wild Cove but wilder ones are just up the coast from here.

Is the Atlantic salmon fishing still good? In the 70's I taught fly fishing in New York and met a legendary fly fisherman who fished around Cape Breton for years. I want to say the river was the Miramichi.

Our salmon fishing here is getting tougher, just curious about yours.

11 million seals of our Atlantic Coast. Not likely to see the fishing get better here either. You might have been talking to Ted Williams or Lee Wolf swift4me. Both fished Cape Breton Rivers and Ted Williams was a stork on New Brunswick's Miramichi.

On my bucket list to make it there soon.
Just a little Celtic history to ponder over when there.

Some nice pics from New Brunswick that caught my eye as another posted them. Atlantic Canada has some great Cats due to our cold damp winters.

That country looks awesome! Unless you're trying to beach a boat.

Great photos.

Actually I was working for Joan and Lee Wulff at the time, but got to know Harry and Elsie Darbee who fished there for many years too. I never met Ted Williams but I did teach one of his ex-wives to cast.

You sure are linked to some of the all-star cast in fly fishing Swift. Sure you picked up some interesting tidbits
yourself in that mix.

Outstanding pictures, thanks for posting.


When you do squats, are your knees supposed to sound like a goat chewing on an aluminum can stuffed with celery?
