Lord Stanley's Trout Aye?
The 2006 Canada National Fly Fishing Championship is currently being held on the Grand and Conestoga Rivers. Forty anglers from all across North America are competing in the 2 1/2 day event. One of the contestants is Bob Morgan from Raleigh, North Carolina. Bob managed to catch a 23 inch brown trout and made sure to take a jab at the Canucks in the post game interview.
"Catching a fish this big was better than beating Canada for the Stanley Cup," he said with a grin, as he eagerly pulled out a picture of his catch and rubbed in the fact that his hometown Carolina Hurricanes now have the coveted cup."
Perhaps we can get some of the "Canes" players to go on a celebratory fly fishing trip with us and use the cup in place of a wicker creel? (Link)
