Jed The Fishing Guide

I began fishing 60 years ago on Lake Ainslie with my father. My experience and gear will allow you to quickly benefit from my heritage on Nova Scotia's largest natural lake. Further afield await fishing adventures in local streams, beaches, other lakes and on the ice of the Bras D'Or. My experience  across North America as well as Australia and New Zealand has taught me the benefits of guidance while fishing unfamiliar waters or for new species. Trying new gear is easier while fishing with someone who knows how to use it. I love fishing and helping friends to fish, whether for a new species, in new waters, with new tackle, or first time fishers. I guide you to a place to catch fish and help you catch it. Join me for fun, adventure and to create your own fishing tales.
