Post subject:  Foley Speaks on Being Brian Foley and other topics...

Brian Foley will be talking about his Labrador travels next week. If you've ever followed Brian's post-adventure trip reports on this forum- you know this kind of presentation is not to be missed.

From the Kennebec Valley TU newsletter, Quiet Waters:

General Membership Meeting
Monday January 14th
Jin Yuan Chinese Restaurant
41 Temple Street
Waterville, Maine.
Meeting starts at 6:00 pm


Brian Foley will be our guest speaker and he grew up fishing the small streams and ponds around Mt. Desert Island.

Since then he has lived in several different states and progressed through many phases of fishing. (technical fishing, destination fishing, trophy fishing etc.) And now after nearly fifty years of fly fishing Brian has come full circle back to the waters and the fish that thrilled him as a child, small, remote streams and wild Maine Brook trout. Today he lives in Orono, and is a Registered Maine Guide and enjoys competitive kayaking as well.

In 2011, Brian drove to the northeastern-most point one can drive to in North America, and took a preliminary hike into the Kanairiktok River, Central Labrador. He liked what he saw but wanted to go to the source, so in 2012, Brian drove back in and hiked 29 miles into the headwater lakes of the Kanairiktok which he liked what he saw even more, but because he was on foot, exploring the area was very challenging. So, after a failed attempt in 2016, Brian drove back up in 2017 and dragged an inflatable kayak and other necessary gear 29 miles back into the headwaters of the Kanairiktok River, this program will be the story of that adventure!
