The History of Bullock's Lodge (Formerly known as Tuckaway Cabins).
From 1961 until 2003 Vince and Hazel Swazey operated Tuckaway, taking over from Fred and Mary Swazey who first opened their doors to sports in 1939 for both hunters and anglers. There have been some changes over the years, the original lodge being lost to an ice jam in 1970. Another cabin was lost to fire due to an electrical storm in the 70's. The remaining cabins still contain original logs from the lodge, and the same spirit of warm hospitality also remain. Full meal plans which were once offered have also been replaced with the current housekeeping arrangements which is one not often found on the Miramichi.
Vince continues to guide part time, and is never far from the river. He is also the present Chairman of the Miramichi Salmon Association, and also spends countless hours promoting conservation with various organizations.
Bullock's Lodge (Tuckaway Cabins) is a member of the New Brunswick Outfitters Association (NBOA), the Miramichi Salmon Association (MSA) and the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF).
