Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum 6th year

The Dieppe Fly Tying Club is holding its sixth Fly Fishing Forum on March 28th and 29th, 2009 at the New Brunswick Community College in Dieppe.

The principal objective of the Forum is to promote the sport of fly fishing in general and attract underrepresented demographic groups like women and youth to this activity; while this continues to be our goal, the Forum has become the harbinger of Spring for fly fishing enthousiasts throughout the Maritimes.

The Dieppe Fly Tying Club is pleased to announce that since the beginning of the Dieppe Fly Fishing Forum, more than $15,000 was given to different conservation and river associations of NB.

For more information and check out the door prizes which sound very good have a look on the Fly Fishing Forum web site.

I Have a table and look forward to seeing everyone there at the show. I will have great deals on Salmon Fishing like 1 day trips, Full Packages and on Self Catering Camps or just Canoe Trips on the beautiful Miramichi River and Cains River. Please contact me and I can tailor a trip to your needs.

I look forward to posting my Fishing Reports for the 2009 season. If anyone at anytime wants there fishing posted on a regular or onetime fish please contact me any time and it would be great to have more reports of the river for anglers to see. If your sending pictures please reduce the size before sending and give a brief description of your fish catch.

Tight Lines,

News from the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF)

In the past week, there have been significant happenings regarding the governance of the aquaculture industry and the need to better protect wild salmon from salmon farming impacts.

A decision by the BC Supreme Court that the province did not have the right to manage aquaculture, and had 12 months to oversee the transfer jurisdiction back to the Federal government, will have repercussions for east coast salmon aquaculture operations. This judgement that determined that the BC provincial government does not have the authority to regulate fish farming or sign MOUs will set a precedent that will cascade across the country.
