East Coast 2014 Part 2

So Day 6:

Has us leaving the northern mountains and heading back to Fredericton. We stopped in at Grand Falls ate, watched some zip liners and then went down into the gorge.

As promised at the end of the last post I was off to river the river behind where we are staying. The river is called the North Branch Rusagonis and in the past I have caught Bass and Fall Fish no bass this time but I did get this surprise.

Day 7:
This was a pretty laid back day and the only pics was family fly fishing.

Here is some shaky video.
Day 8 was more of the same but we did find a Canadian Tire store with a full fly fishing and tying section. Pretty stark contrast to the no fly fishing store and depleted fly sections I am used to in Winnipeg.
Just the wife and I fished the same river for bass etc.

Day 9:
This was our drive to and and first of 6 days in PEI.

We arrived Montague, settled in at our B&B and ate down by the wharf.

Day 10: Was a bit of looking around. We found a spot a local guided favorited but I have plenty of buggy mud holes back home to fish.

It was raining off and on all day but we did end up fishing the Morrel River. My son caught his first fish on the fly (and Tenkara) and my wife had fun taking photos of me casting.

Day 11:
Went to put some recycling away and found a young raccoon. The owners of the B&B pull the bin to the ground to let it escape and it made straight for the trees.

Then we were off for a little tour to the East Point Light House.

Next off to Basin Head beach. This is part of the Northumberland Strait so the water is warm (19 Degrees Celsius that day)

Then we went to Georgetown and at at Clam Diggers.

Later that evening I fished the Morrel River again and caught 3 American Shad (new species for me)

Day 12:
So we Checked out the South east part of the island and where a little underwhelmed. While it was still nice the scenery wasn’t anything you couldn’t see almost anywhere and was a little less as the rest of the province is as neat as a pin from private homes to towns to parks and this area was a little less of that.

We did visit a nice vineyard.

Combine with an earlier trip to a local distill and our love of Gaham beer we have quite a lot of “adult” souvenirs.

Then off to Point Prim lighthouse and as the tide was going out and the ocean floor revealed itself. After we ate at the Chowder House which was both excellent and reasonable.

Amazingly I didn’t fish this Day
