World Record brookie. Good for the char. Good for the lake. Good for the angler. & good for National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame. & so sorry to the vanquished fish.
Mrs. coldH2O & I saw this fish in Thunder Bay, Ontario way back in 1972. We were married in January of that year & for a honeymoon toured the beer factories of Milwaukee. It was there that I learned an important life skill: tap beer is best at the brewery. Later in '72 we went on a more official honeymoon with two friends & their son. We went up north of Thunder Bay, & it was a fun trip. We did catch some brookies, but nothing like this one. It was displayed at a small tourist information building. It had been skinned & then plastered to a piece of slab wood. It was cool.
NOTE: There are a lot of links in this post, click on them all if y'all want to find out some good stuff. Remember, it's fish like this that we must save for our grandchildren, at least my granddaughters. & that's why we fight for peace, &amp;amp; NOLA, & against Bu$hCo.
