The Destination Angler Podcast


The Destination Angler podcast is THE podcast for anglers who travel. With Steve Haigh 

We go to the source, the local guides & experts, to build your knowledge of top fishing locations around North America.

Nov 18, 2021

Our destination is the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland and our guest is expert guide and fly angler, David Hartlin, of David  Hartlin Guiding.   Few gamefish species have attracted the attention of the Atlantic Salmon which are known through the ages for their enormous strength and acrobatics. Lee Wulff established his Atlantic Salmon Fishing camp in this area in the 1930’s and today, over 60% of the world’s top Atlantic Salmon streams are right here.   

Newfoundland is THE place to go if you are looking for some head-shaking, hard running, tail-walking trophies.  And David is just the guy to tell us about em.  He’s been guiding hunting and fishing trips in these parts since 1998.  In fact, he grew up in this area, caught his first Atlantic Salmon when he was 8 years old,  and used to skip school just to chase Atlantic Salmon.  David also has a YouTube channel and his own podcast called The Guide Shack Chronicles.  So take a deep breath as David tells us how to live and breathe Atlantic Salmon in Newfoundland!   

With Host, Steve Haigh
