Speaker Highlights

Alex Swartman graduated from the Algonquin College Outdoor Adventure Program in 2012. He worked as a white-water raft guide for Wilderness Tours before making the big move out East. Until recently, Alex spent the winter months working as a ski instructor, snowmaker, and groomer operator at Poley Mtn. Resorts in Sussex.  Alex fell in Love with fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon Fishing in the 2016 and has been tying flies since 2017. Alex has created the Fly-Fishing Bushwhacker YouTube channel in 2021 to help promote Atlantic Salmon Fishing in New Brunswick.
Chris Sinclair was born and raised on the St. Mary’s River, Nova Scotia. He spent most of his career guiding for Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trout and Steelhead in Labrador and British Columbia. During the spring and fall months, Chris manages the Restigouche River Lodge in Mann's Mountain, New Brunswick. At the lodge, Chris guides and instructs clients, whether it be fly fishing or fly tying. When he not tying flies or working, he can be found in the near water, trees or in the hills of Eastern Canada.
 

Valmont Landry started bait fishing for Trout with his dad and uncles when he was 6 years old on local rivers, mainly on the Harshman River (presently called Tediche River) close to home in Cap-Pelé. He started fly fishing in his mid-twenties. Valmont always had interest in tying his own flies but could no seem to find the time. He started tying around 2005 and later joined the Dieppe Fly Tying Club and improved his tying considerably with the help of Jacques Heroux, Bryant Freeman and other experienced fly tiers in the club. Valmont finds fly tying to be a very relaxing hobby. Valmont ties salmon and stripped bass flies but his prime interest is in trout flies.

Todd Kennedy grew up as an Outfitters son in Nova Scotia Canada. He started fly fishing and tying flies around 7 years old. Todd was fascinated by the fly boxes full of different flies from around the world that clients brought to their lodge. He learned to tie flies from watching clients. He then supplied all the flies for clients and guides at the lodge.  Todds favourite fly is the swinging spey flies in the fall for Atlantic salmon, and topwater fishing a big deerhair at night for huge brown trout. He loves the look and profile of traditional salmon flies and the feeling he gets when he hooks a fish on a 200-year-old pattern. When fishing brown trout at night Todd loves the sound of a brown trout hitting a top water fly. Night fishing sharpens all your senses as you don't rely on your sight.
Grant Dempsey was born in Moncton, NB but originally from Herring Cove, NS. He always had a passion and dedication for Fly Tying and as well as Fly Fishing. Grant is a Veteran who served in the Canadian Armed Forces for over 32 years.  At a very young age he used to help his father prepare feathers and peacock herl for dry flies, whether for Trout or Salmon. Grants father introduced him to dyeing fly tying materials over 33 years ago which he still enjoys doing as a Hobby.  Two of Grants other mentors were Mr. Bryant Freeman and Mr. Gayland Hachey. He have been a member of the Dieppe Fly Tying club since 2018.
Marc D’Astous is a guide and fly tier based in Saint Phillipe NB. By foot or in a canoe he likes to fish wild waters for wild fish on the fly. He is the owner of Coq Mouche, a fly-tying and guiding venture.
Allen Kay began his Journey in 1979 in the Province of New Brunswick Canada, when Allen picked up a bobbin loaded with size “A” black thread to begin making his first salmon fly under the guidance of his father, Don. Over the many years to follow Allen has produced thousands of flies from his fly tying desk. One pattern which stands out is the Ingalls Butterfly which his Dad used on the Salmon Rivers of the province, those of which he gave to others to fish with to entice the mighty Atlantic Salmon.

Many fishermen would ask Allen if he would sell him a fly which he was successful with in a certain pool, the reply was usually a resounding “No”. “You cannot pay me for this fly but I will give you this one which I caught the fish with”. He would take the fly from the leader and hand it to the grateful salmon fisherman. “Here use this one, it just caught a fish”.

Some of Allen’s favourite rivers to fish in New Brunswick, are those in the North Central Part of the Province including the Miramichi System. He also is fond of some trout fishing in Eastern New Brunswick near his hometown of Dieppe, where he resides with his wife Rose, a supporter of his fly tying hobby.
