Also known as Wading Luc, Luc Desjarlais is a Canadian living in Sutton in the Province of Québec, a stone-throw from the Vermont U.S. border. An early retiree and dedicated wade fly fisher, Wading Luc has spent the most part of the last 20 years roaming the streams of Northern Vermont and those of the Canadian Eastern Townships pursuing the usual suspects: salmon, trout and bass, but also the unusual pike, carp and others with the fly rod. Wintering in Florida found him in Mosquito Lagoon pursuing Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout and in the St. Johns River pursuing American Shad.
Luc Desjarlais recently published Wade Fly Fishing the Eastern Townships of Québec West of Lake Memphremagog, the fourth of the guide book series “Wade Fly Fishing“. Wade Fly Fishing the Upper St. Johns River (Florida) for American Shad was published in December 2014. Wade Fly Fishing Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River Lagoon (Florida) was published in January 2016. Wade Fly Fishing Northern Vermont was published in November 2018.
As is the case for the three preceding books, Wade Fly Fishing the Eastern Townships of Québec West of Lake Memphremagog covers in details a precise geographic area with a focus on wade fly fishing: all the rivers and their tributaries and all lakes and ponds of the Missisquoi River in Canada, Rivière aux Brochets and the Yamaska River upstream of Autoroute 10. This book is published in French and English, in print and digital versions.
Luc Desjarlais is an honorary member of the fishing club Mid-Coast Flyfishers in East Central Florida. In Vermont, he collaborates with the State biologists. In Québec, he is active in youth fishing events and collaborates with organizations dedicated to the protection of the streams and lakes.
