About this title


(Synopsis) New Brunswick's Restigouche River has been celebrated for centuries for its large Atlantic salmon, perhaps the largest in North America. For much of its angling history, only the very wealthy had access to the sport fishery. This changed in 1927 when the government established the Government Open Water, or Restigouche Reserve, ''...for restricted or regulated public fishing.'' In later years this seven-mile section, with some alterations, became known as Larry's Gulch. Jim Marriner, well known throughout the province for his conservation work on behalf of fish and wildlife, has written a history of this important public legacy. Alan Graham, former Minister of the Department of Natural Resources and Energy, wrote, ''I congratulate you on such a fine documented history on one of our great assets.'' In 232 richly-illustrated pages, Tight Lines Mean Bright Fish, The Larry's Gulch Story, takes the reader from the inception of leased waters on the Restigouche to the present day. Along the way a mix of historic and modern images document the people who have contributed to the Gulch's success and the wonderful waters which have made it possible.
