The Salmon Journey
The summer of 2020 took a very different turn for Monique Pomerleau, Fred Campbell’s mom, as he invited her on a salmon fishing trip around Gaspésie. At that time, she had absolutely no fly fishing experience so she had to double her efforts to enjoy this unique experience and learn as much as possible about this activity she’s always found so elegant. Even though his son has always been a fan of fly fishing, Monique considered this as a dream. This active women was questioning herself before the trip whether she’d be physically able to do it because of her fear of water and her Parkinson’s disease. Fortunately, the desire of spending some quality time with her son and the appeal of a new challenge was convincing enough to get her on the road.
