As you stand out in the fast moving Salmon River in Main Brook, Newfoundland fly fishing, you can watch the salmon breach in the river but actually catching them is another trick. A guide can show you how to cast and use your fly fishing rod but when you do get a nibble or two, you have to be able to reel them in.
Having a great deal of experience at fly fishing is the best solution. Whether or not you actually catch a salmon is all in the luck of the cards but the wilderness that surrounds you is stunning. The sounds of the wildlife is all that you hear with your hip waders on standing in the river and waiting upon your catch of the day.
On the Northern Peninsula in Main Brook, Newfoundland, the best time of year to test your luck at fly fishing is around the beginning of July to the middle of the month. The salmon usually peak around this time in the Salmon River as long as the weather has cooperated.
While in Main Brook, Newfoundland, there are a number of fly fishing adventures that are available through the Tuckamore Lodge with all the fly fishing gear you need. A guide will come with you to help you in your experience of fly fishing and show you the different techniques of the sport.
