New Project Healing Waters Canada coordinator New Brunswick is announced
A New Project Healing Waters Canada Coordinator New Brunswick is now confirmed and his name is Charles Boudreau. Known as Chuck, he originally comes from Bathurst.
Thanks to his Dad, Chuck was introduced to fishing and fly fishing at an early age. Consequently, when he was 13 years-old, he started tying flies. He is also a professional fly tyer and, as a result, continues to give lessons as a fly tying instructor.
In the late ‘70s, Chuck graduated from Bathurst High School and attended New Brunswick Community College for a degree in Electronics.
After graduation, Chuck took a position with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) in northern New Brunswick. His role was field technician, involving Atlantic salmon enhancement on the Nepisiquit River in the province.
Chuck eventually joined the Canadian Air Force in 1984. He served in various locations, all the while with a fly rod by his side. In 2010, he retired and took a position with IMP Aerospace for a 5 year contract.
Now living in Burton, New Brunswick, Chuck shares his home with his lovely wife. Furthermore, the couple have two boys that are now out of the house and with families of their own.
In conclusion, Chuck is looking forward to teaching and helping fellow veterans. Most of all, he hopes to get them out to enjoy the great outdoors with tight lines, and maybe with a fly they tied themselves.
