On July 14th, Three Rivers Lodge in Canada lost contact with their plane carrying a pilot, 2 guides and 4 clients as they traveled into the Labrador wilderness for a day of fly fishing. After an extensive search conducted by local and Canadian Authorities, 3 bodies have been recovered, those of Matthew Weaver, John Weaver III, the 66-year-old pilot Gilles Morin and a 50-year-old guide from Newfoundland and Labrador are still missing, but are presumed dead by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The small Quebec airline that provided the air-service to the lodge, Air Saguenay, has had 3 fatal crashes in the past 9 years.
We are saddened to see another fatal incident involving fly anglers and would like to extend our condolences to the families and friends affected by this tragedy.
