Sand Hill River Lodge

Join Bob and The Fly Rod Shop for a once in a lifetime fishing trip to the Sandhill River Lodge in Labrador to target one of the most sought after species on a fly, Atlantic Salmon. These ocean run fish enter rivers in early June and spend their summers in the rivers prepping for the late Summer/Early Fall Spawn.  Along with Salmon you may stumble across enormous Brook trout, Char and the possibility of an ocean run Brown is always there too! Spend the mornings and afternoons fishing with a local guide and spend mid day and the evenings with Bob covering everything from fly selection, fishing the riffle hitched dry fly, to building leaders and managing fly line! This trip runs from June 24th to July 3rd and does include two days of travel time. Guests must fly into Goose Bay, where you will be picked up by a float plane. The Cost of the trip is $4,795.00 This includes Float Plane Ride, Lodging at the Sandhill River Lodge, meals and guiding/instruction. Not included is a $300 tip for the Sandhill River Lodge Guides as well as 1 night of lodging and dinner on either end of the trip at the Northern Light Motel in Goose Bay.
