Matapedia - my first Atlantic

Hi Brian
I fished 3 days on the Matapedia at the beginning of August. Hooked four fish for two in the net. A grilse about 5 lbs and then a salmon guessed at 14-15 lbs. This was my first salmon fishing trip and my first trip fishing with a two-hander. I must say since returning home I can't think of much other than planning my next trip swinging flies. Gotta get some dirt on my gear so i don't look like such a "sport" next time!

Pics taken on a cell phone. Sorry about the quality.
