Our Guides

Hawke River Outfitters handpicks guides for their experience on the river, as well as their experience in working with guests. We want to provide you, our guest, with the best fly fishing experience possible.

Wally Cunard

Hailing from Brig Bay, Newfoundland, Wally is a commercial fisherman where he fishes for lobster, cod and even eels. Wally has guided fisherman in Labrador and Newfoundland for most of his life. His general knowledge of the river and the outdoors, combined with what can only be described as a huge sense humor, make him a pleasure to have around. Also, when given the chance, he’s capable to show even the most seasoned angler a thing or two.

Wade Mahar

Wade comes to us from Bird Cove on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland. When not guiding with us at Hawke River, Wade will be guiding for moose on the Island. Quiet and knowledgeable , from the first day of the season until the last, Wade brings his "A" game to the river.
