We’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again (and again): There’s no better place on earth to go fishing than this vast, beautiful, diverse land of ours. And we now have numerical proof to back up the claim—1,328 hot spots from every province and territory, to be specific. That’s how many great destinations our various panels of experts have recommended over the years, complete with tips for catching more than 60 different species of fish.
