DEAN SAGE: Dean Sage first came to the Restigouche in 1875, & when he returned home wrote an article for Atlantic Monthly entitled "Ten Days Sport on Salmon Rivers." Sage's Ristigouche adventures were a major undertaking and generally lasted all summer. He and his companions packed several months worth of supplies and equipment, boarded a steamer from New York to Boston, and then took another steamer to Saint John. They travelled by train to Shediac, where they boarded another steamer to Dalhousie. There, they rented wagons & drove to the Matapedia River where they hired Micmac guides & travelled slowly upstream by canoe & horse-drawn barge. On his first trip, Sage camped on a bluff overlooking a swirl of mists and currents at the confluence of the Ristigouche & Upsalquitch rivers. He realized that he had found a place to which he would return. He later wrote: "We made a raft to transport our luggage down, & that night pitched our tent on a beautiful bluff at the junction of the Upsalquitch & Ristigouche, & just over the pool. Here we were comparatively free from flies, with good fishing all about us & a delightful view up and down both rivers." Dean Sage, of Menands, near Albany, New York, was a famous salmon angler and the Sage fly was his creation. He wrote about the Atlantic salmon in the volume, Salmon and Trout, 1902. The Sage fly has a yellow dubbin body; silver rib; a tail of widgeon; scarlet, green and orange or yellow hackle; & a dark widgeon or mallard wings. Mr. Sage formed an exquisite angling library which was inherited & augmented by his son, Dean Sage, of New York, who in 1942 disposed of it at public auction. The collection had many of the earlier books, including fifty-eight different copies of Izaak Walton's Complete Angler, two of which were of the first edition of 1653. At the sale one of these brought $975 and the other $950, a new high for this "one-and-sixpenny book." The value in 1850 was estimated at $63. On June 23, 1902, Dean Sage & his guide Alex Marchand fished the morning and landed three salmon. Sage returned to camp & ate lunch. He retired to his bed at 4 p.m. with chest pain & died soon after. During the night, a casket was brought up from Matapedia & the next day Sage's body was floated down the stream. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 01003
