Addiction comes in many forms. For Jay Valley, it manifests itself by way of Atlantic salmon fishing on the Népisiguit River in New Brunswick, Canada. It means being on the river by the break of day to lay stake in the best pools and staying put until the sun sets. For awhile, it meant enjoying the river on his own, but Valley now shares his favorite haunts (and signature moose stew) with other fishermen. This short film profiling Valley is a part of the People We Met series from Hooké.
