Matapedia River Lodge

Your Host

After more than 35 years in the stage and film industry, the decision of realizing my greatest dream wasn't very hard to make.After 6 years of tree cutting and landscaping, the big day to begin the lodge construction finally arrived in may 2011.

I have fished for many species for over 30 years and there is nothing like fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon. Salmon fishing is not only about catching fish, it is an outstanding sensory experience for the sights, sounds and scents of the river and the wilderness. My greatest passion was and always be fly fishing.

This passion has driven me to challenge myself to created many effective taking partners.

One of my favorite creations, the Serge Vincent, honoured me with an invitation to be a juge at the FQSA Salmon Flies World Fly TyingChampionship.

Salmon fishing is not only about "catching" salmon, it's also about living with everything about fishing, its history and legends, nature, the soothing tune of the river, singing birds and the enveloping scent of its trees and wildflowers. My greatest passions have always been and will remain fly fishing and salmon.

This passion led me to surpass myself in flies editing and create several very effective fly patterns. Thanks to one of my creations, the Serge Vincent, I had the honor of being a judge at the FQSA Salmon Fly World Championship.
