One of our favourite retail partners is based in Quebec City and owned by Thomas and Antoine Theberge. Their store is called ‘Les Artisans Bas’ and it is one of the best Canadian retail concepts one will find anywhere in Canada serving the bustling tourist traffic.
Thomas and Antoine share a love of the deep northern bush with me and we coordinated a flight to their remote fishing camp Northeast of Saguenay Quebec.
En route I collected their family passengers at Marina Venise in Montreal. The weather cooperated and we completed the return trip after harvesting numerous speckled trout over the weekend.
The Theberges are as comfortable in the bush as they are in their store in Old Quebec City and I was privileged to visit some of their secret fishing lakes with them.
There’s nothing like deep fried ‘Specks’ for lunch in the middle of Northern paradise.
