This website is designed to introduce the book Closing the Season, Salmon Fishing on the Miramichi and Cains Rivers, and to share with my fellow Atlantic salmon devotees information about the Miramichi River’s Atlantic salmon fishery.
Closings, as it has become known between Duncan Barnes – editor-emeritus of Field and Stream Magazine – and myself, is available directly from me through this website. If you request, I will be happy to sign your book to you personally.

Do you have any questions for me about the Miramichi or Atlantic salmon fishing in general? Just e-mail me and I’ll do my best to provide you with a thoughtful answer. If I don’t know the answer I’ll try and point you in the direction of someone who does.
