Praise for Salmon Camp….
“The Upsalquitch is a river small enough to be called “intimate” and is loved by any salmon angler lucky enough to fish its waters. This story is of Livy Parsons’ passion for this special place, a passion awakened in his 11th year by his Aunt Katharine. Katharine deB. Parsons is a woman for whom my admiration knows no bounds as I imagine myself in her place in 1936; a single woman in her 30s, buying one square mile of road less wilderness in a foreign country, in order to fish for the magnificent Atlantic salmon. Sixty-eight adventurous years pass, and Boland Brook Camp remains just as remote and unspoiled. This is a book to read in one sitting!”…Joan Wulff, world-renowned fly-caster and instructor.
“Livy Parsons’ Salmon Camp, The Boland Brook Story, is the story of a wonderful, little salmon camp in the New Brunswick wilderness. This story of how his Aunt Katharine founded Boland Brook Camp in 1936 and spent every summer fishing there until she died in 1993 is a remarkable tale that will interest all salmon anglers.”…Bill Taylor, President of The Atlantic Salmon Federation
“A vivid, thoughtful and engaging look at the history and personalities at one of the great Atlantic salmon camps.”…Nick Lyons, Fishing author and publisher
For over 40 years I have lived for the excitement of the “big grab,” when the salmon decides to take my fly, Salmon Camp: The Boland Brook Story is about a dream lived by many anglers over a long period of time: waking in the morning with the river near at hand; being guided to strong, big, wild Atlantic salmon; the big grab itself; reminiscing the rest of the day, weeks, months or years about the beautiful silvery fish hooked and released, or lost. Salmon Camp is a delightful revelation of one camp and the special people who created and supported it over many years. I published it because it’s about a life many of us would have liked to live…Frank Amato, avid fly angler
