"South Bog" is a streamer fly I created, and named for what I believe is the most beautiful wild brook trout stream in New England. Its located in Maine's western mountains tucked into the spruce and maple woods. Its inhabitants will not break any records, with a trophy of ten inches being a great catch. I have fished this wild gem for many years, fishing it in the Autumn, trying to see if one of those lake giants would strike my Mickey Finn streamer. This area of Maine has many more productive waters to fish, but none as beautiful as South Bog.
This gentleman from Glastonbury, CT. a Trinity College Professor loved this area so much that he wrote a poem that is posted at an entrance to South Bog. He died in the winter of 2007, falling through the ice on Rangeley Lake while cross country skiing.
