This is what you do when a salmon runs off downstream…

If you can stand the soundtrack, this is another nice film showing some lovely Atlantic salmon, including several takes right at the surface.

These anglers clearly don’t believe in the old adage: “you never strike a salmon”, and to be fair to them, most of the fish seem to stay on. (I think I’ll stick to not striking them myself though)

This video was shot in 2012 on various rivers in the Gaspé Peninsula, Quebec, Canada. The rivers include the York, St-Jean, Dartmouth, Pabos, Grande-Riviere and Riviere Sainte-Anne.
