    This past year was my first experience fishing salt water. What a fishery we have here!. My wife and I decided to retire here in NL and so we did. I find some of the guides confusing and hard to interpret however I did experience an Atlantic salmon both at the end of a fly and my fork!
    As far as the salt water fishing, I have met and fished with a great deal of new friends here and despite some of the stories I had heard of, all fishers observed the rules except one! That was heartening.
    Tags and licences are probably not required however I have no problem with that as long as the monies collected are kept and directly used by the DFO. (Provincial). The salmon are a valuable stock and many many times last summer and the one before, I was asked if I wanted to by fresh salmon!
    I believe that the apprehension of 2016, was but the tip of the iceberg and more enforcement is required. Please consider a deputy programm as Conservation and the Guardians are spread way to thin, plus most poaching occurs outside of your business hours.
