DINNER AND INDUCTION CEREMONY
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

Doaktown Curling Club (29 Prospect Street)

A very important – and extremely popular – part of the Atlantic Salmon Museum is our Hall of Fame, a place set aside to honor a special group of individuals (conservationists, anglers, guides, outfitters, fly tyers, writers, artists, and others) whose lives and livelihoods have been devoted to the Atlantic salmon, here on the Miramichi and elsewhere. 

Nominations to this elite group are accepted on an annual basis and each year in the fall, festivities are held to honor the new inductees.   The Nomination Form is easy to complete and Museum staff are standing by to offer any help that might be needed.  The deadline for nominations to this year’s Hall of Fame is Saturday, July 1, 2017 with the induction ceremony and dinner set for Saturday, September 23.      

For more information or to reserve your tickets, please contact the Atlantic Salmon Museum at 506-365-7787 or at museum@nbnet.nb.ca.    

We look forward to seeing you there!

If you know of an individual or group who you feel merits a place in our Hall of Fame, we encourage you to complete our easy Nomination Form and forward it to the Museum prior to July 1st.  Our contact information is as follows:

SALMON STORIES160 Years of Salmon Stories

With almost 400 pages of stories, photos and historical information, this hard-cover book honors the men and women from the Miramichi Valley and beyond who were inducted into the Hall of Fame between 1983 and 2012.  Some of the names like sportsman Theodore “Ted” Williams, wildlife artist Arthur J. Taylor, and authors Wayne Curtis and David Adams Richards will be instantly recognizable.  Others like guide William “Willy” Basco, fly tyer Wallace “Wally” Doak, and the owners of Wilson’s Sporting Camps on the Upper Miramichi will simply evoke fond memories of happy hours spent in pursuit of the elusive Atlantic salmon.  Written by local author and experienced story teller Morris Green, 160 Years of Salmon Stories comprises 128 “short stories” that, in just a few paragraphs, will transport you out on the river.  The book is available for sale at $40 (shipping and handling extra) in our Riverside Treasures gift shop, or by contacting the Museum at either 506-365-7787, or museum@nbnet.nb.ca.
