Hervé Malec, Guide
Hervé is a seasoned guide, appreciated for his professionalism. Hervé hides phenomenal talents handling a fly rod as well as a pleasant sense of humor.
Nabisipi Outfitter encourages the live release of all salmon caught on its territory and participates in the Atlantic Salmon Federation (FSA) live release recognition program. We appreciate your support in helping us conserve the valuable salmon population of the Nabisipi River. Your daily limit will be in accordance with local regulations. We ask that you use flies mounted on single barbless hooks. This type of hook is much less damaging to the salmon and it allows your guide to release the salmon in a much safer way. Make sure the salmon stays in the water while taking pictures and during the release.
