Fly fisherman on the Margaree River, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

A fly fisherman spey casting for Atlantic Salmon on the Margaree River in the fall.

Fly fishing from an old gray rowboat with a cowboy guide on a high-country western Colorado trout pond, I decided that the moody, unresponsive trout needed to see something with an Eastern motif. A Hornberg was called for.

“What is THAT lil’ thang?” Sam asked me. Under the shadow of his sweat-soaked Stetson, he stared at me through squinting, doubtful eyes.
