NSPA/MSA Dinner a Success!
On Thursday March 28th, 2019 the Northumberland Salmon Protection Association and the Miramichi Salmon Association held its 23rd Annual fundraising dinner at the Rodd Miramichi. This year, the NSPA presented it's "Friend of the River" award to Ashley Hallihan in recognition of his continued efforts as coordinator of the fly-fishing clubs at both Miramichi Valley and Blackville High Schools. In addition, Ashley is actively involved in the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Schools Network, which is having an event on the Miramichi this summer as part of the International Year of the Salmon.  Congratulation Ashley!
