He made his first casts at the age of 5, on his father’s lap at the family cottage located on the Zec Varin. Since then, his passion for fishing has permeated him. First, with spinning gear, he hunted species as much salt water as freshwater. Having become a fishing guide for groundfish, then for pike and salmonids, his experience allows him to know the fishing formalities particularly well. He has been involved in fly fishing for more than a dozen years through his guide service, fly tying and also through his contribution as an instructor at the Caudale Fly Fishing School. Benoit stands out for his passion for fly tying which has been going commercially for about ten years now. Benoit developed a technique that allows him to obtain durable and very efficient assemblies.

A talented fly tyer from a young age, he has placed in the FQSA World Salmon Fly Championships on more than two occasions. Raphael has accumulated a lot of experience in salmon fishing, but also in several freshwater species from Quebec. He also has saltwater fishing experience (Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon) having to his credit three "Grand Slam" registered at the IGFA. In 2017, he became a Senior Partner in Caudale Fly Fishing. Raphael is a launch instructor with a prestigious CI International Certification issued by the Fly Fishing Federation (FFF). He is the creator and host of the Caudale Podcast. Succeeding with his rigour and perfectionism, in 2020, he made a major professional leap to devote himself full-time to his passion. He joined the SHOR Fishing team as vice-president and in 2021 became one of the owners of Neptune.

Graduate from the HEC in Montréal, Eric is a formidable entrepreneur for whom work blends with his greatest passion. Coming from a family working in the world of fly fishing from generation to generation for 70 years now, Eric took over the family business, Boulard Distribution, with a desire to modernize the company. To achieve this goal, he launched the SHOR Fishing brand, which offers a variety of fly-mounting products and fly-fishing equipment now distributed across Canada. Seeing the complementarity that Neptune could bring to its current business, the acquisition of the business was easy and natural.
