This post is a few words about a book, and the home of my friends.
The book is titled Brook Trout Forest, and is written by Kathy Scott. It is a well written book and tells of bamboo rods,the teaching of children the finer points of trout, salmon and the beauty of the outdoors.
She mentions fishing for brook trout in Maine, and other states, as well as Canada.
If you have the opportunity to read it do so. You will truly enjoy it.
A few words about my wild friends. As the book speaks of the Brook Trout Forest, below are some of the wonderful wild places they inhabit.
Although the brook trout has been pushed back into smaller headwater streams, they take no backseat to beauty. They live with the fern, hemlock, maple, with the tiger lily, the mushroom, salamander, snake, and the countless wild animals who live there alongside the brook trout.
I have pursued the brook trout for years, and never grow tired of him, nor the beauty of the environment he dwells in.
