My father in Alberta. He taught me to fish when I was five. When he was fifty I introduced him to the Far North.
Fishing in Fast Rivers
You don’t become a river fisherman by improvising. The fish are in very specific locations, and you may go hungry unless you know where they are.
Predatory fish like trout and salmon lie in wait for their prey.
Fish can be found in places where the currents cancel each other out and where they can maintain their position with a minimum of exertion.
