Thanks, Lynn. For more on Mr. Ball, I recommend all check out Grannyknot's Post #14, on the thread, "Roll Call" by Wilson10 following Troutfest 2011. Ray was the subject of one of my most favorite installments of WBIR 10's Heatland Series hosted by Bill Landry. Bill, a fine angler in his own right, was treated to a quick Tremont fishing lesson and fresh fried trout lunch right on the banks of Middle Prong. I have tried in vain to find a video of the episode. Guess I gotta buy the DVD.
