Spring is coming…
The 2019 March-April edition of the Newfoundland Sportsman magazine is now in the capable hands of our printers, with distribution scheduled to begin late next week.
Among articles featured in this issue is Paul Smith’s account of one of his earliest Eider duck hunts and how much he learned from an old friend. Frustrated by the start – and confusion – of last year’s salmon angling season, Jamie Pike tells how it turned out to be his very best.
Jeff Hutchings writes about the advance of today’s air rifles – their power and accuracy. Gord Follett tells the story of a “friendly ice fishing competition” between a couple of buddies, while Rob Solo gives his expert explanation of the “hitch”. Click here to read that story.
In his editorial, Gord explains why he’s often had to focus on certain topics in recent years.
These articles and more, along with two pages of Readers’ Photos and Letters to the Editor, are featured in the March-April issue of the Newfoundland Sportsman magazine
Our cover photo, by Paul Smith, features Cameron Gosse with a beauty Atlantic salmon from the Pinware River in Labrador.
