Young Fly Guide Dies in Russian Crash
Sad story about a young man on his way to being a guide on one of the world's most exciting salmon rivers.
This story was published all over the place but since the young man in the story is from the southwestern US we found the most meaningful stories - the ones where his friends actually talk about his love for flyfishing - in Albequrque, NM. He lost his life in the Russian jet crash last week and we thought it appropriate to find a story that told of his life - not his passing.
Jeremy Brooks started young - like a lot of us did - and was on his way to being a guide in one of the most incredible Salmon sites in the world. The Ponoi River offers high-end, high-adventure travel for the most dedicated fly anglers in the world. One can only imagine how excited he was to start his new life.
