There is something very special in Gaspé, Canada. Nature, wild rivers and lakes, forests and mountains, a rugged coastline and the vastness that makes the traveler, and in this case the angler, feel that this land is infinite and full of incredible possibilities.
Atlantic salmon is the main star, tracing upstream pristine rivers that run through endless forests on its way to the sea. I have fished there, I´ve had that great luck. I shared some of the most exciting days of my life after Atlantic Salmon with local and foreign anglers. To me, there´s nothing more exciting (and sometimes frustrating) that sight fly fishing for atlantics in these rivers.
Today I´ve remembered those happy times and all thanks to this magnificent video (Gaspé/Le film) by Hooké people. An outstanding job, not only for its photographic quality, but by knowing how to transmit the emotion and that special atmosphere of fly fishing in Gaspé. I keep it as a video to enjoy regularly and, when I feel homesick, press play and go back there.
Thank you guys for this amazing job!
It´s been a privilege to publish the story and photos of danish fly fisherman and photographer Bo Hermansen and discover his passion for fly fishing, photography and bamboo rods construction.
“As with my first fly rod, I had to earn my money for the things I wanted. So when I was fourteen, had saved enough money I could buy my first reflex camera.”
The story of an early passion and a small sample of the quality of his images. You can read it in the latest issue of Flymage Magazine
