Brass Plaque On Willie's Bench

This fish was the one my late friend always talked about the most. It took him well over an hour before he could hand tail it in big spring water conditions. He said it was the most perfect & powerful spring salmon he had ever seen. In the later years of his life (some 60 years after it's capture) he would still talk about the fight it gave him on his father's 18 ft greenheart rod as if it had happened only yesterday !!!!
