Pontooning for Atlantic Salmon

Finally managed to get a little time to edit some footage from a trip 2 seasons ago.
Yes , the title was purposely mispelled. (That's my story...)
Hope you enjoy & thanks for watching.

Nice, I liked the tunes. I take it that was a GoPro with the fisheye lense? Do they make them now with non-fisheye lenses? Looks like a nice trip.

That's how you unhook and release fish!

Nice work fellas! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks all!

Alan, it's a river on the north shore of quebec's st.Lawrence.

Dr.Bob,
I'm not too familiar with what lenses they are. It was a gift from my godson. It says hero on it. Appropriate I'd say. You know, for all the hero shots....
Lol.

Mike,
Based on recent threads, I'd say that we all have the winter blues! Lol.
Spring can't cone soon enough to make us sane again!

John, extremely well done video ! A lot better than the Hooké crowd with their yelling high fives and hugging after catching a fish !
Cool, that you were able to fish the upper end of "falaise" pool from that side ! I've wondered about that as the drift always seemed better from there .
I see you'e continuing the usual Mitch BURRRAAPPPHHH breakfast

Don't sweat the bad casts for they sometimes bring you fish

Thanks Brian.
Well, you can hike down from the dam to get to the other side, but there are places you can cross from not too far upstream. It looks sketchy cause of the dark water, but nothing more than waist deep, depending on water levels of course.
Fished it a couple of times again last year and crossed with no problems.
It does fish better at certain spots, but you're right over them so spey casting is not a good idea. Stealth is recommended.
Lots of brookies in there.
You shoulda seen the spaghetti shore dinner we cooked up in the evening! Good thing we had separate tents!

Thank's for da info .
I hope there were no "shart" stains on the tent walls ! Spey casting is ALWAYS a good idea
BTW ,HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!!!
