A Thousand Words with Warren Platt

A Thousand Words with Warren Platt


Two men in loooooong canoe.  Don't know what they're after but the large net would handle whatever it is.  On the back of the photo is just an advertisment for the photographer and he's from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

They are fishing for huge trout in the Soo Rapids. I have seen an old silent movie of this and Ray Bergman wrote about it in "Trout". This is the location that he speaks of where the local favorite fly for this fishing was a streamer made from Bali Duck feathers. Just this last year I mentioned to a supplier that I had a few Bali duck feathers in some well preserved fly tying materials from the 30's. He ask if he could have them as a customer was asking for them and they had not been able to locate any anywhere. I told him his customer must be reading Ray Bergman and he immediately said that's exactly right. I gave him the feathers which look more minnow like than any I've ever seen.
