A lot of (cast) irons in the fire!

Il n'y a rien de mieux que de la truite fraîchement pêchée, frite dans du beurre. Vous n'avez pas besoin de faire grand-chose pour la rendre savoureuse ! J'emporte toujours ma poêle en fonte lorsque je quitte la maison pour aller passer du temps dans la nature. J'adore sa polyvalence, qu'il s'agisse de cuire des steaks ou de faire des œufs, elle est capable de tout faire. Allumez votre feu et attendez d'avoir un bon lit de charbon. Pendant que vous attendez, préparez votre truite en faisant une entaille avec votre couteau de l'arrière vers l'avant le long du centre...

La Rivière Margaree

Margaree, Nova Scotia By Kenzie Kozera & James Bessette   While it feels nearly impossible to put the beauty of Margaree into words, this blog post will attempt to do so and only hope that we remotely do it justice…  Margaree and its surrounding areas contain some of the most beautiful scenery one may encounter across the globe. With vegetation that glows so brightly green in this summer that you would assume photos are edited and vibrant fall colours that draw tourists to the Cabot trail from across the world, you will no doubt find yourself simply staring in awe...

Celle qui m'a échappé.

My passion for fishing started at a young age. My two younger brothers and I would go and cast at whatever would bite. The lake that our family cottage is on unfortunately does not have many fish, so we were excited when our dad said he had rented a spot on a beautiful nearby lake. Exploring new waters can be both gratifying and challenging. We didn’t know when we arrived, but that weekend would turn out to be more on the challenging side!  After a few days of hard fishing and nothing to show for it, we started to get discouraged....

Pêche au Coho en Alaska

by Erik Barrus   For many folks whether they have been fly fishing for a week or 30 years there are a few places around the world that are considered a Mecca of sorts for fly fishing. Runnin’ down browns on the South Island in New Zealand, hucking streamers for logs in the rivers of Patagonia in South America, nearly walking on top of salmon while trying to land a big ol’ buck during the silver runs in Alaska; these are a few of the places that people dream about.  I have had the great fortune to take in the...

Ma première truite

Par Michel Carrier   Mon aventure amoureuse avec la pêche vue le jour il y a très longtemps. Je n’avais que cinq ou six ans quand ma grand-mère Irène nous a emmené, mon frère et moi, au ruisseau Sisson, un petit cours d’eau situé à quelques pas du camp que mon grand-père avait construit en forêt dans le nord-ouest du Nouveau-Brunswick. Arrivés sur place, « Mémére » coupa quelques aulnes auxquelles elle attacha une quinzaine de pieds de fil de pêche noire (similaire au backing qui se trouve maintenant sur mon moulinet à saumon). Cela n'aurait pas pu être une canne à pêche...
