 Newfoundland and Labrador is a good place to do recreational fishing. The island of Newfoundland is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and has many rivers and streams which flow into the Atlantic Ocean. Labrador boarders the Atlantic Ocean and has many remote rivers and streams.

Newfoundland and Labrador is home to some of the best Atlantic Salmon Rivers in North America. Today our Rivers are as good as anywhere in North America with thousands of Atlantic salmon and trout being angled every year. Newfoundland is home to 60% of North America's Salmon Rivers. In fact it has more Salmon Rivers than the remainder of Atlantic Canada and the United States combined.

Newfoundland and Labrador fly fishing is truly world class. It is definitely possible to catch fish on your own without a boat, but the right guide can make your experience much more enjoyable and productive.

We do not offer a guide service through our shop but instead maintain a list of local guides and outfitters who you can contact to arrange a trip. Please use this information to research the individual guides and outfitters. Contact them directly for more details. This is not a comprehensive list nor are we specifically recommending any of these individuals or outfitters. All are established professionals with good reputations who cater to fly anglers. If you have a good (or not so good) experience with any of these guides wed love to hear about it. If you haven't spent much time fishing with guides or the services of an outfitter and aren't quite sure what to expect take a look at our links to Newfoundland and Labrador area guides and outfitters.


If youd like to order flies in advance of your trip, John Sheppard would be happy to fill your order and have it waiting at the lodge for you. Please note that fly orders will have to be placed well in advance of the season to insure that your order is ready.
