We love fly fishing, but we love matching our angling with foraging and outdoor cooking even more. As early as May, we can guide and forage for fiddleheads, spruce tips, fireweed shoots, scotch lovage, and other shore greens. We've learned the game by watching and conversing with the fantastic local chefs (many of whom are also avid anglers) who have made St. John's a destination for the boreal dinner table.

Wild Berries

Beginning with the first bakeapples in mid-July, wild berries may be gathered in abundance over the rest of the summer and fall. Blueberries, partridgeberries, raspberries, chuckly pears (saskatoon berries), plumboys, creeping snowberries, blackberries, cranberries, and marshberries provide a continuous harvest on the bogs, barrens, and coastlines surrounding St. John's.

"I'll show thee the best springs. I'll pluck thee berries. I'll fish for thee and get thee wood enough."

William Shakespeare,

The Tempest

------------------

...and there are always salmon and trout around that you may add to the fire. Combine your greens, berries, or chanterelle foraging with fishing to make your own meal. Cook it up on the river or back at your vacation rental back in St. John's.

Our guides have over ten years of commercial chanterelle foraging experience. Individually, our guides have foraged and sold wild golden and winter chanterelles, ceps, and hedgehog mushrooms in copious amounts to world-class St. John's restaurants. Let us show you the gritty gastronomical joy of cooking over a fire wild mushrooms that you have foraged yourself.

"After a good dinner one can forgive anyone, even one's own relatives."

Use your visit to St. John's to impress at your next dinner party with the delicious simplicity of fresh, wild ingredients. With our guides and foragers, brief chanterelle foraging can provide more than enough for several meals.

Not into fly fishing? No problem. If we're not on the water, our guides can take you on a simple forage and leave the trout and salmon alone. Simple foraging excursions are available well into October and are not bound by the angling seasons.
