The third is written for anglers looking to catch the fish of a lifetime and describes how, when, and where to catch a trophy brook trout or landlocked salmon.

Lou worked at LLBean for over 14 years and had the opportunity to fish with and learn from a number of fly fishing legends such as Dave Whitlock and Dick Talleur.

This author has been fortunate enough to catch a number of salmonids over 8 pounds including brook trout, atlantic salmon, brown trout, steelhead, and rainbow trout.
