Re: SBRR the premier trout stream?

Thou Ken Lockwood Gorge is nice. I find other rivers just as or nicer. The lower Musky for me get much love. Imo the Musky Gorge is way nicer & lower fishing psi.

Andy is alive and well on Facebook which is where most of the fishing talk has migrated to over the recent years. He's not fishing as much these days.
Brian, if you can shoot his FB screenname over to me PM or email (both should be good here), I'd appreciate it.

Andy B

If I'm recalling correctly, wasn't Andy B someone who used to tie classic wet flies (seem to recall him

If so, anyone here from, or run into, him anymore?
