Bryant Freeman

All Things Fishing

  Author:   Doug Underhill    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Bryant Freeman was born by a river, and the sound of roaring water was both magical and constant. For the rest of his life, Freeman, an icon in the New Brunswick fly-fishing community, would be drawn to the outdoors, and, invariably, rivers. Freeman has been honoured for his many contributions to fly tying and the conservation of Atlantic salmon and his specialty fly shop, Eskape Anglers in Riverview, New Brunswick, has been a destination for decades, a gathering place for tyers and anglers. Fondly known as Bryant the Banana Finger Man, Freeman is also a born storyteller, and in this book, readers are treated to some of his tales. They even get instructions on how to tie a Carter’s Bug. Author and fisherman Doug Underhill follows Freeman from his childhood on the banks of Nova Scotia’s Medway River to today, revealing fascinating insights into the man and the fine art of fly tying.
