We recommend that all hunters bring high powered rifles equipped with scopes, that have see-through under open sights. Rifles should be sighted for 150 to 200 yards.

Each hunter should bring warm sleeping bags, warm clothing, rubber footwear, binoculars, rain gear and of course a camera for those spectacular pictures of your trip. Because of fly-in camp, you should try to keep your gear as light as possible - approximately 60lbs or less.

Liquor and tips at guest discretion. Hotel accommodations, if necessary. Also, extra fee for cutting, packaging and chilling or freezing of meat. To fly meat home cost $50.00 for each 50lb box.

Cheques for licenses fee and reservations should be made payable to Aster Caines (Outfitting). Personal cheques are accepted for license fees and deposit only, but not for final settlement of account balance. Final payment is due on arrival for the trip.

Once licenses have been issued by the Dept. of Tourism, there will be no refund on license fees, but license and deposit may be transferred to another person.

Non-resident hunters should provide proof of passing hunters safety test or of having a big game license in previous years. Photocopies of such proof is acceptable. We will provide special applications which must be filled out by hunters.

Sometimes choosing an outfitter can be very difficult. Some outfitters tend to over hunt their area, this makes it very difficult to find game. If you decide to come with us, I'm sure that you will have a successful and memorable hunting or fishing trip. Hunters should book early to avoid disappointment, because licences are limited.

Newfoundland temperatures may change quickly at times. You should bring some warm clothing and some light clothing as well. Also, bring rain gear, insect repellent, sun glasses, hip boots, and chest waders for salmon fishing.

Some flies to bring for salmon fishing are: Rusty Rat, Blue Charm, Thunder & Lighting, Dusty Miller, Silver Tip, Silver Grey, Green Butt, Black Dose and Green Highlander. White Wulff, Royal Coachman, Grey Wulff, Rat Faced McDougall and Orange and brown bugs are the best dry flies.

For trout fishing, Royal Coachman, Coachman, Wolly Worms, Blue Dun, Orange and Brown bugs are the best patterns. Local tied flies can be purchased at camp.
