Buck Perry's 22 LB Bass
Hugh Koontz of the Shelby Star writes about Buck Perry. Perry is a recently deceased fisherman and inventor of the "spoonplug", once caught a world record setting 22 pound largemouth bass. Perry was famous for fishing around structure and in the article Koontz shows us how that can also apply to fly fishing for trout. Perry was 90 years old when he passed away in Taylorsville, NC. He was the retired President of Buck's Baits.
