Volunteer Profile: Pat WallApril 3, 2018
Meet Pat Wall, a member of our Nova Scotia Advisory Committee.
“I’m a retired radiation specialist from Nova Scotia,” said Wall. “For over 40 years in my spare time, when not casting flies to illusive fish, I was also a freelance photographer and writer. My interest in Atlantic Salmon began at age six fishing the Salmonier and Colinet Rivers on Newfoundland’s Avalon peninsula. Since then I’ve fished for the ‘king of fish’ throughout Atlantic Canada. My favourite angling destination now is Labrador, especially the Eagle River.”
Wall joined the Nova Scotia Advisory Committee in 2017 and considers himself a novice.
“I agreed to join as I’ve had a keen interest in Atlantic salmon conservation for many years. Currently I belong to several Atlantic salmon conservation organizations and am the current president of Wild Salmon Unlimited based in Nova Scotia. What I’ve learned, and continue to learn, from the devoted people of those organizations I feel will help me help ASCF carry out its mandate.”
Wall said he hopes that during his tenure he will make a difference, and in so doing provide an example to those who may follow.
“Today, the world of the Atlantic salmon is precarious and I encourage everyone to join with a conservation group like ASCF or become politically involved on their behalf to prevent their demise.”
Volunteers are crucial to the work ASCF does, and each month we will introduce you to one of our stellar volunteers to say thank you for all the work they do in Atlantic salmon conservation.
