The Miramichi Salmon Classic 2013
July 15-17    
Limited to 40 rods

The Miramichi Salmon Association will hold its eighth annual Miramichi Salmon Classic for July 15-17th, 2013.   Anglers from various regions of the United States and Canada joined us for the four day event with three days of fishing on the Miramichi River. First timers and returnees experienced fishing the Northwest Miramichi, Little Southwest Miramichi, Renous, Dungarvon, Sevogle, Cains and Main Southwest Miramichi with Miramichi Salmon Association volunteer guides.  This incredible value is a great way to be introduced the Magnificent Miramichi River System, Lodges, Guides and more.
Walt Geryk holds a free one hour Spey Casting Clinic at the Upper Oxbow Outdoor Adventures on the day of its barbeque with others upon request. These clinics include Hardy, Greys, Airflo and Rio products, for all attending, to try on the water.
Great time to ask those single and two-handed spey casting and fishing questions you may have.
