Description:

292 pp. Slipcased "After his many years of tireless research, and the intensive investigation by a small army of archivists, assistants and researchers, the well-known angler and author, Hoagy B. Carmichael has produced what should become the definitive history of Atlantic salmon fishing in North America. While focusing on the Grand Cascapedia River, the themes and indeed many of the participants are universally recognized. This is large, full-color, slipcased book that is a major and elegant book production. It’s a weighty volume by any measure and it is just as essential to the serious angler as Dean Sage’s classic, The Ristigouche and its Salmon Fishing. The modern sport of Atlantic salmon fishing dates to about the 1860s and here begins Hoagy’s narrative up to approximately 1932. Volume Two, the matching companion volume to this, charts the progression of the sport and the fishery from this point to the present. Hoagy began to fish the Grand Cascapedia regularly every year during the mid-1980s. He quickly became immersed in the lore of the camps and lodges and the personalities and has spent these subsequent decades examining the history of the river and the history of the sport. What we have with this book is a remarkable, panoramic, almost epic story of the development of the sport of fly fishing for Atlantic salmon. As Charles B. Wood points out in his introduction, primary sources were tracked down and utilized for the bulk of material presented here. These include previously unseen family archives, personal letters and journals, private photographs and paintings, including some unseen Pleisners, and countless interviews with anglers and their descendents. This then becomes a very rich source of new information and delightful visual images of the fish, of the anglers, and of the elaborate and not so elaborate camps and lodges that are inextricable strands of the fabric of the great sport of fly fishing. Many if not most of these images have never been seen or published before." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Meadow Run Press, Far Hills, 2006. Hard Cover. Condition: As New. First Edition. 292 pp. In slipcase. A very rich source of new information and delightful visual images of the fish, of the anglers, & of the elaborate & not so elaborate camps & lodges that are inextricable strands of the fabric of the great sport of fly fishing. Private photos & paintings. The second and final volume of the award-winning history of The Grand Cascapedia River. In its eleven chapters, Volume II covers the history of the river's eight camps, and the sports who fished out of them, from the mid-1930's through to the present day. Topics covered include the creation of the Cascapedia Society, salmon netting, both Native and commercial, the nagging difficulties of the logging industry and the Riparian Association. It also details the interesting story of how the Cascapedia Club (New Club) almost lost, but retained the river lease, and lastly an Appendix with several astonishing stories. A gallery of photographs at the end of each chapter further bring to life the relevant people, places and events. This volume is more than an account of the bellwether Grand Cascapedia River - it is a book for those interested in the history of Atlantic salmon fishing in Canada. Stories of big fish, big and little people, and the will it took by many to slowly return the river to its historic greatness. Taking up from the mid-1930s where Volume I ended, Volume II covers in detail how the great river almost went back into the hands of the Canadian government during the Great Depression, how it was saved and by whom, and then how the pools were reallocated, much as they are today. The great camps, Tracadie, Middle Camp, and New Derreen, to name a few, are reborn and a New Club is formed. This volume also details in the "River Management" chapter important concerns that imperiled the river; weeks of river-mouth clogging log drives, excessive commercial fishing in the Bay of Chaleur, the rights of the Micmac Natives and their netting at the mouth of the river, and how the river's unique governing body, The Society, was conceived in the face of a hostile government.
