A Special Letter From Falmouth
Red Brook I'll bet it looks different today.
Some weeks ago I did a post on two wonderful kids from Falmouth MA....the article authored by Lori Day appeared in the Winter 2018 issue of TROUT magazine. The story touched both Jeanette and I that I reached out to Sophie and Nate to try to convey our feelings on their awesome visit to Red Brook. I requested that Sophie sell me her special fly that she tied for her brother Nate to use at Red Brook. Her response was I'll tie you one but there will be "no charge"
Well the day after Christmas we received a letter from Nate and Sophie. Upon opening the letter I found several wonderful lines penned by both Nate and Sophie. These words touched both Jeanette and I..... "thank you" Nate and Sophie. And I really do like it Sophie, well done. Nate I'd be very happy to fish with you, when conditions warm and and the scenery is much greener.
The care in the packaging...it shipped just fine.
Hand tied by Sophie, age six. I would add that the fly is tied from recycled Easter basket grass.
"Sophie's Pink Shrimp"..I was going to fish this fly here locally but decided to wait until I get back to Red Brook....What do you say Nate? Thank you both for the uplift.
