Earlier this summer Junior and I managed to carve out a week to head up to Nova Scotia for some summer salmon fishing. We usually go in the fall (I just got back from that trip – more on that later) so this was a bit of an experiment, and while the trip as a whole was great, the fishing was pretty mediocre on account of some extremely low water. That was basically the story all summer long in the Maritimes unfortunately.
At any rate, the trip did give us was a chance to scout some new pools and to say hello to some old friends like guide Ed McCarty, and to just poke around a bit. One of the places we stopped — which I make a point to visit every time I’m in the area — was the Margaree Salmon Museum, which I highly recommend to anyone who loves salmon fishing. Below are some photos Junior took while we were there. There are a number of things that bamboo enthusiasts will particularly like.
