On the stage...
Full stage schedules will be announced soon! For now, enjoy some sneak peeks of these presenter bios:
Gerald Robichaud was introduced to Salmon Fishing in 1980. Born in the Kent region, he is been teaching Fly Tying since 1994 in schools and villages in Southeast NB. In fact, he did over 300 presentations in schools over the years. In 2012, he was asked to create a Salmon Fly for the ‘’Becoming an Outdoors-Woman N.B.’’ program. He is also giving Fly Tying, Fly Fishing and Angling workshops through the province of NB.
Deirdre Green lives in Nova Scotia and is an avid angler. She is passionate about our catch and release fishery and protecting our river systems. Deirdre volunteers with local non-profits and is a proud member of several river associations. She first began fly fishing in 2015 and has made strong relationships within the angling community ever since. She actively encourages other would-be female anglers to give the sport a try and to be patient with themselves and the learning curve. Deirdre’s first Atlantic Salmon was showcased in the Atlantic Salmon Journal and her writing has been featured by sporting outfitters within Canada and the US. On the off-season, her obsession with fishing spills over into her other hobbies. Deirdre ties all of her own flies, paints and writes; drawing inspiration from the wealth of time she spends on the river. Deirdre’s love for fly fishing encompasses everything she does and she eagerly seeks out opportunities to share her passion for this fulfilling lifestyle with others.
Tying flies since the age of fourteen on a “homemade rotary vise”, Steve Silverio has ventured into all forms of the fly-tying art. Known primarily for his innovative saltwater & large predator flies, Steve has developed patterns for many species from striped bass to sailfish and is constantly experimenting with new natural materials for his designs. Combining classic dressings with modern concepts, his flies are an amalgam of tradition and simplicity. Steve loves to tie with natural materials and actively seeks fresh road kill.
