        So here we are in Nova Scotia, 3 friends who all have Ryman Setters, gathered for a couple weeks to adventure with our dogs, tell stories, laugh, eat and fish for Atlantic Salmon.  Our own way of continuing a tradition and making memories.

        We have a great time together, I can’t wait to do it all again.

          Great photos!  Looks like quite a crew and sounds like you guys know how to have a fun time.  🙂

            I was just in Nova Scotia doing an Acadia history tour with my wife who is a Cajun from Louisiana. I had my dogs along as we were headed to the Michigan Ryman setter owners gathering after Nova Scotia. Are you guys Canadian or did you have a Canadian guide? I wanted to hunt grouse, but nonresidents must have a Canadian guide.

            Also, did you salmon fish on the Margaree? I really wanted to do that, but ran out of time.

            Nova Scotia is beautiful, and I would love to go back some day.

              Oh to have posted sooner you might have seen this and been able to join us!  Sean and I are Canadian local here in NS, we get a guides permit to take Pete who is from Mass.  We did not fish the Margaree as there was good water in areas closer to us in Antigonish.  Sean does spend many days on the Margaree each year.  If anyone is ever in our neck of the woods please feel free to contact us we would be more than happy to meet up.  Our bucket list is to make the trip to Michigan Ryman Setters meeting.
