First Cast is an annual weekend program hosted by the Miramichi Salmon Association. This program is an introduction to fly fishing with no age limit! First Cast is an excellent chance for a “relatively experienced” fisherman to bring along someone who is new to the sport and, with the help of volunteers from the MSA, participate in a two-day mentoring experience guaranteed to be the start of a life-time of fly fishing and a new appreciation for our natural environment where our cherished Atlantic salmon roam. Whether you have a child or grandchild that you’ve always wanted to share your passion for the sport with, or if you’ve always wanted to learn about fly fishing and never had the opportunity, we encourage you to take part!
Our 2023 First Cast program has concluded. Thank you to everyone who participated! Our 12th Annual First Cast program will take place in Summer 2024.
