A native of Blackville, New Brunswick, Wayne Curtis started fishing the Miramichi River and its tributaries when he was eight years old. In Fishing the Miramichi, he shares over forty years of guiding and salmon-angling experience. But Curtis goes beyond regaling readers with yarns about his fabled river; Fishing the Miramichi richly proves his skill as a historian, a naturalist, a teacher, and a fine essayist. Although fishing is in his blood, Curtis is devoted to the preservation of the Atlantic salmon. His Miramichi culture grounded him in nature, and fishing with conservationists such as Ted Williams and Lee Wulff reinforced his convictions. Fishing the Miramichi sets stories, angling instructions and character sketches of outfitters and guides in a context of responsible sportsmanship.
