We have received an incredible donation from the Charles Cusson at the Atlantic Salmon Federation. At the presentation you will have the chance to win the following:

2 days river access on the Matapedia River in Quebec for 2 anglers in the public sectors (4 rod days in total) 1 day guided fishing for one of the two days of access on the Matapedia River. This will be either in a canoe or walk & wade depending on water conditions. Your time on the Matapedia, if you win, can be booked any time from July 20 to Sept 30, 2021 so you have time to plan your trip! We are deciding how to extend to you this incredible opportunity, it will be either a draw or a live auction! Either way, you must be in attendance! Please note what is not included: Guide gratuity (tips) Fishing Gear Transportation Accommodation

This event will take place after the International International Fly Fishing Film Festival where we will be raising money and awareness for the Atlantic Salmon Federation.

Join us for both events, it'll be a blast! If you'd like to join us for the film festival as well tickets can be found here: International Fly Fishing Film Festival Tickets

For too long it has been thought that the Atlantic salmon opportunities on the Gaspe Peninsula, and other areas of Atlantic Canada, are only through clubs and for the wealthy who can afford a thousand dollars per day of angling.

. This couldn't be more wrong - these rivers are accessible, affordable,

and yours to discover.

Rob, the founder and owner of Drift Outfitters, has been to the Gaspe Peninsula to fish for Atlantic salmon on three DIY trips fishing for 5+ days at a time, without a single trip costing over $1200 CAD! It took a good friend to show him how to access this region and these rivers for cheap, and we want to share that knowledge with you.

Charles Cusson, Director of Quebec programs of the Atlantic Salmon Federation, will be at Pauper's Pub on March 1st, 2020 directly after the International Fly Fishing Film Festival at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema. He will break down the region, how to access the rivers, and how to keep your costs down.

The Atlantic provinces are an incredible resource for all Canadians and traveling anglers ,

and you don't have to break the bank to fish them. The beauty they hold, the incredible fish you can connect with, and the memories you can make - don't miss out!
