Jack’s Walk

This is a bit of an extended Jack’s Walk with a few photos we took while traveling through the Matapedia Valley on our way east. The area is world renowned for salmon and trout fishing and the river is dotted with high end fly fishing resorts. The Mr. and I fish with rod and reel, but we’d both like to try our hand at fly fishing. Most resorts are now catch and release (after the photo, of course) and there are strict limits on what can be kept. There are also fishery officials out and about watching. I know from personal experience, but that’s a story for another time. The last three photos were taken from the car.

    Mm. It’s a funny psychological thing, but pretty much every photo you post of Canadian places, even the ones I myself have rarely visited, looks like home. (It’s not just the wildlife and nature, which is similar to here, but a matter of scale, too.)
    The second photo is certainly wonderful (for such a vast space, it feels very intimate), but my favourite are the first two of the last three -- a pair that makes a symmetry out of the loneliness of boats and houses.
