Nice looking fish. Do you have to release the larger salmon in NB? We have to in NS.

Ya we have to release 24 3/4 in and up in NB. I found a chart on the net about the weight of salmon and being 35 1/2 in and a 20 in gurt he should average 17 to 18 lbs. It's the bigest fish ive ever caught. I landed it alone with no net, i thought for shure i was going to loose him.

It's great that you had a camera to capture the moment or else the fish would just be another story. I understand their release policy but I feel you should be able to keep one over the size if you so choose to. Nice salmon though.

salmon

I used to spend a lot of time on the st'Mary's river in Guysburough co .and caught a lot of salmon .Now the river is closed to salmon fishing .I spent a lot of time on other rivers like the Liscomb R , West R pictou co . East river .Pictou co. Salmon R guysbourough co . This being my favorite. This is salt water and most of the fish have sea lice on them .There is fall fishing in a few rivers here but it's not the same .When Oct rolls around I'm into bow hunting for deer .Needless to say I haven't bought a salmon licience since years . I don't expect to see salmon fishing here again .

flies

I got thse flies of the french channel on tv a long long time ago .I didn't know what they talking about but I sure could see what was happening .One of those bugs with the double wings out front was floating down the Rustigoush river and up came a large salmon and took the bug .I made some and did they ever work on the salmon in NS .I have seen my friend and I fishing at Salmon R in Guysburough and after about an hour and a half be sitting there watching everybody fishing because we had our 2 fish each "they are deadly "
