Canadian guide, fly tyer and avid angler

Jocelin LeBlanc

Jocelin is a well known figure in Eastern Canada & Quebec Fly fishing communities. A full time river guide on Québec North Shore Region, an accomplished fly tier & fly fishing instructor.
Drainage/Rivers: The upper Aux Outardes River, Trinité, Pentecôte and Aux Rochers Rivers.
Species: Atlantic Salmon, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Sea Run Brook Trout, Brook Trout and Lake Whitefish.

He describes his background like this:
- I grew up in an era when every little boy would fish for brook trout, had a BB gun and wanted to be a coureur des bois. Thank god a big part of me never grew up!

- Everything worthwhile for me seemed to lay just East of where I spent my childhood years... and when I finally hit the end of the road, I was in Newfoundland. After guiding there for 2 summer, and having so much fun, I decided to see what was at the other side of the Belle-Isle straight , I ended up on Quebec's North Shore. I have been working full-time in Quebec for 10 Years now. Since 1998 My wife Sonie and I host fly fishing trips all over the North Shore introducing old and new friends to some of Quebec's North Shore best fishing destinations. I'm also a professional fly tier, and have been tying flies since my early teens.
