I just got back from my fishing trip in New Brunswick Canada and what a great trip it was. I was fishing with my dad on the mighty Miramichi river and its many tributaries. We were fishing for Atlantic Salmon and the first three days we fished as part of the 2012 Salmon Classic put on by the Miramichi Salmon Association and the last two days we fished the Museum pool owned by the Miramichi Salmon Museum. Well during the Salmon Classic we fished 5 different pools and my father caught and released alive a beautiful Atlantic Salmon grilse and I got the entire catch on video (it was awesome and this salmon jumped 10 times before being netted and released). As usual I had no luck during the Salmon Classic but every pool we fished had salmon and my father and me fished hard (no doubt fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon is tough and exhausting) . Well on Thursday we fished the Museum pool and after many long years, thousands of fly casts and allot of frustration, I FINALLY!! caught an Atlantic Salmon on a UNDERTAKER salmon fly ( a great fly and cool name) and even though it was just a 5lb grilse for me it is a huge accomplishment for me to catch such an incredible fish on a fly rod. You truly havenâ€™t experienced fishing until you fish for Atlantic Salmon and words canâ€™t even explain how these fish fight, how powerful they run when hooked and how beautiful of a fish they are. NO Doubt!! Atlantic Salmon are the king of game fish and for me this has been the crowning achievement in my angling career. No longer can I hope to catch one of these amazing fish, now I have a memory to last a lifetime and hopefully just the beginning of many more Atlantic Salmon catches.
