Women are tossing their old ill-fitting bras for the full support of a properly fitted bra. “Women are finally realizing that there is comfort, there… Read more »

Vince Mullin, on Life, Work, and Happiness

Vince Mullin fills his downstairs workshop with a welcoming presence. Sitting back in a worn chair, next to a guitar still under construction, and farther down, a myriad of other stringed instruments in various states, it’s obvious that he’s a busy man. Outside, the nighttime sounds of King George Highway compose a distinctive soundtrack for [Read More…] Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for October 27, 2011

With only the Bartibog and Tabusintac Rivers open for two more days, there has not been a lot of angling activity.

When angling over for another year, most anglers simply chuck their equipment out in the garage or in the basement where it remains until next season. Wise anglers will take a few minutes to examine their equipment and properly prepare it for winter storage. This ensures a better start next year because the gear will be in top shape for another season.

First look at your waders unless you still plan to use them for some duck hunting. When you have finished with them, they should be thoroughly dried and stored in a cool dry place. Avoid the furnace room as high heat may cause cracks, producing an unpleasant surprise next spring. Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for October 20, 2011

For the most part, another angling season is in the books. Generally speaking, the last week of angling was tough fishing for most. One exception was the Northwest Miramichi which, according to Syd Matchett, continued to fish well until the last day when the rain came.

George Routledge said that the Quarryville and Blackville areas were very quiet with only the odd fish being caught. That is not to say that anglers were not catching. As always, there were places that fished well into the final day.

That aside, the 2011 season has to go down as one of the best years in a long, long time. Catches were excellent and water conditions were almost perfect for the fish through out the season. Even those who did not have great luck, had the opportunity to see a lot of fish. There were also very good reports of big salmon being seen through out the season. Read more »
