Item #333339

A deliciously witty account of the angling adventures of four Baltimoreans who, inspired by a 1634 Canadian visit of George Calvert, Lord Baltimore, spent a month salmon fishing on the island of Anticosti in the Gulf of St. Lawrence where they fished the Jupiter and La Loutre rivers. Such memoirs are often of interest only to the participants, but this one is an exception: its 46 pages sparkle with lively delight. Privately printed book detailing a month-long salmon fishing trip on Anticosti Island among four Baltimoreans and a Canadian over 250 salmon were taken.
