Off to McKenzie River Lodge in Labrador

blog-July-29-2015-1-flyfishing-for-brooktroutI vividly remember sitting in dads lap back in the late 60’s and early 70’s on Saturday afternoons watching sports.  The minute The Wide World of Sports was over, on came The American Sportsman with Curt Gowdy.  My absolute most memorable episode was when Curt had Lee Wulff as his guest and Lee guided Curt in Labrador for gigantic brook trout.  At less than ten years of age I already had a goal in life – catch giant brook trout in Labrador!
