Riassunto:

Closing the Season recounts an Atlantic salmon fisherman's love affair with the world-famous Miramichi River and with the Cains, one of its most appealing autumn-run tributaries. Brad Burns, a well-known striped bass fly fisherman and author of the L.L. Bean Fly Fishing for Striped Bass Handbook, first visited the Miramichi in 2002 and was quickly seduced by the challenge and the tradition of salmon fishing in this renowned New Brunswick river that is easily accessible but still unspoiled.

Along the way you'll meet some of the salmon fishers who helped make it all happen-people like baseball great Ted Williams, Hungarian freedom-fighter and guide Willy Bacso, and pioneering Miramichi outfitter Charlie Wade. You'll also learn about the near death of salmon sport on the Miramichi due to out-of-control commercial fishing and the re-emergence of the river as "big fish" water after conservationists were successful in pulling out the nets.

A large portion of Closing the Season is devoted to the Cains, a small wild river with big salmon that arrive in the upriver camp pools towards the tail end of the season in late September and October. The author's daily journal of the last five weeks of the fishing year lets the reader share with Burns and his fishing friends the thrill of angling for salmon on their spawning passage upstream while enjoying the abundant resident and migratory wildlife and the changing look and feel of this pristine place as the fall foliage peaks and wanes and the Cains settles in for the long, cold, Canadian winter.

Closing the Season offers more than 125 photos and illustrations and carefully researched historical maps and documents. But Closing the Season is most of all a celebration of the joys of fall salmon fishing in a great Canadian watershed that boasts the largest run of Atlantic salmon in North America.

Descrizione libro Burns Fly Fishing, 2015. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. 1st Edition. 224 pages with 125 photos and illustrations. Closing the Season recounts an Atlantic salmon fisherman’s love affair with the world-famous Miramichi River & with the Cains, one of its most appealing autumn-run tributaries. Brad Burns, a well-known striped bass fly fisherman and author of the LLBean Fly Fishing for Striped Bass Handbook, first visited the Miramichi in 2002 & was quickly seduced by the challenge and the tradition of salmon fishing in this renowned New Brunswick river that is easily accessible but still unspoiled. Burns has done his homework and his writing about the history of the Miramichi watershed and how the Canadian system of managing salmon fishing on public and private water developed over the past 125 years is especially interesting. Along the way you’ll meet some of the salmon fishers who helped make it all happen – people like baseball great Ted Williams, Hungarian freedom-fighter and guide Willy Bacso, and pioneering Miramichi outfitter Charlie Wade. You’ll also learn about the near death of salmon sport on the Miramichi due to out-of-control commercial fishing and the re-emergence of the river as “big fish” water after conservationists were successful in pulling out the nets. A large portion of Closing The Season is devoted to the Cains, a small wild river with big salmon that arrive in the upriver camp pools towards the tail end of the season in late September and October. From the author’s journal notes taken on a daily basis for the last five weeks of the fishing year, the reader gets to share with Burns and his fishing friends the thrill of angling for salmon on their spawning passage upstream while enjoying the abundant resident and migratory wildlife and the changing look and feel of this pristine place as the brilliant fall foliage peaks and wanes and the Cains settles in for the long, cold, Canadian winter. Closing the Season offers more than 125 photos and illustrations including carefully researched old maps and other interesting historical documents. The journal also features some lovely original sporting artwork by John Rice (including the cover painting) that brings to life the long angling history of the Miramichi and the Cains. Brad Burns shares some very useful information about flies and other angling gear, along with anecdotal how-to that will be of interest to any salmon angler. But Closing The Season is most of all a celebration of the joys of salmon fishing in a great Canadian watershed that boasts the largest run of Atlantic salmon in North America. Part I: SALMON ON THE MIRAMICHI AND THE CAINS CHOOSING THE MIRAMICHI: Remote yet easily reachable by good paved roads, the Miramichi holds fully one-third of the Atlantic salmon in North America rivers. All those salmon and a history rich in angling tradition sold me on the Miramichi. CAMPBELL’S AND KEENAN’S: These two salmon pools, once held by Wade’s Fishing Lodge in Crown Grants stretching back to the early 1800s, along with a comfortable camp up on a hill overlooking the river, became my home base on the Miramichi. THE CAINS: This small tannin-stained tributary to the Miramichi fills with very big salmon making their move to the headwaters every fall just as the season closes in October. We fish the Cains in the wake of the early guides who “sailed” down the river from Bantalor in Chestnut canoes. Part II: THE JOURNAL At salmon camp the order of the day is fishing. We enrich the experience by “reading” the water, noting the birds and other abundant wildlife, and letting our thoughts flow with the wind and the weather, and the vagaries of the salmon migration. This journal is my record of one year’s fall fishing on the Miramichi and the Cains. EPILOGUE: The fishing at the close of the season in October was still fresh in my mind’s eye when I returned to Mahoney Brook on the Cains the following April. Part III: TACKLE AND TECHNIQUES I’ve spent thousands of hours crotch-deep in the Miramichi and the Cains and am happy to pass on some. Codice libro della libreria 01014
