Here’s Rudy’s salmon fishing bio:
Rudy started fishing for salmon and trout in Maine back in the eighties and thanks to his grandfather he’s been tying since he was a boy. He donated for years to the Miramichi and Margaree Salmon association dinners, events and the museums. He had donated in the past by giving flies to Andrew Dumaine to donate in the name of the Yankee Renous club or “A friend of the river .” He fished out of a camp at the mouth of the Cains, owned by Jim Leonard until it was burnt down, fished the Restigouche, snuck into the Brophys on the Cains years ago by Ivan Vickers, several rivers on the Gaspe , the little Southwest, and was invited to fish the Renous by a friend of Andrew Dumaine’s. Rudy has also fished at the Blackbrook Salmon club, Bullocks, the Ledges, Ted William’s White Birch Lodge, Brad Burns camps at Campbell’s Pool and Doctor’s Island, and for over 30 years on the Margaree. At one time Rudy fished with his friends, but for the past twenty he goes to camp with his wife Iris, who loves the Margaree especially because when salmon fishing there she can sleep past 5 am which is when Rudy gets her up in every other camp.
Rudy ties flies on a daily basis; he calls it his happy place. Where else can he daydream ?
