LA VIE EST BELLE À SAINTE-ADÈLE - 2016
For many years, Sainte-Adèle’s Lac Rond was host to a one-of-a-kind fishing tournament. At the time, the lake was stocked with over 2,000 trout each year, making it an ideal fishing spot for anglers of all ages and levels. Given that several of the trout were marked with a corresponding monetary value, it is easy to imagine the frenzy out on the lake! Over 400 anglers came to fish, making the tournament a wonderful family fishing event. The tournament’s original name was The Fishes Tournament, however upon the passing of its founder, a distinguished businessman and great ambassador for his village, the name was changed to The Maurice Aveline Fishing Tournament. The main objective for this tournament was to attract tourists to Sainte-Adèle, a mission which is shared today by these magnificent Laurentian murals.
