Re: Big Flatbrook.

Ed, What a fantastic story. Just reading it made me think of you fishing back then. I feel as I was right next to you watching what you were doing and encouraging you on with fly fishing.

Re: Big Flatbrook.

Re: Saturday opener

Hi Tailwater, Your eyes have got to be better then mine. I don’t have a camera and I do not carry a net. What the heck, if they get off so be it. It’s the fight which is important and the trout in BFB fought like crazy. The sky was overcast and no rain. I had the whole stream to myself. From the bri...
