I'm a new member, presently living in Scotland, but have just bought a house near Lunenburg NS. I hope to move to Canada (if you guys will let me in!), but meantime I will be visiting as a tourist several times each year. I'm keen to get fly fishing in NS, but really need some help to get started (also if I don't get fly fishing I'm gonna be forced to spend too much time painting things and building furniture in the new house).
Over here, I fly fish in fresh water for trout mostly and occasionally for salmon and occasionally fly fish in the sea for sea trout.
I'd really appreciate any help anyone can offer about;
a) Where I can fly fish within easy striking distance of the Lunenburg area.
Where else I can go where the fishing is good but will entail a journey.
c) What species I can fly fish for in NS (I hear about bass, but know nothing about this fish, where or how to fish for it)
d) Where I can go fly fishing for salmon in NS (even though it may entail a journey)
I know it's the wrong time of year to be asking this, but I'll need some time to start finding the right fishing gear for NS and maybe starting to tie some flies that work over there! Are there any clubs I can join? - it's always great for a first time visit to a water to go with a local who knows what what and where and how to fish!
Any help or advice will be grateful received!
