Fishing Photos of George Fletcher, the Shop's Founder

He was not only a good businessman, but George was an angler at heart.  These are fish from some of his travels. There is also a great newspaper article from May of 1987 when George, at the age of 87, caught the first salmon of the season on the Penobscot River (an impressive 35 1/4 " salmon!) and brought it to President Ronald Reagan.  Thanks again to Brady Hoffman for sharing these photos!
