Paddling with Ghosts - A historical perspective on fly-fishing the Bois Brule River

Historical Perspective on Fly-Fishing


History Sunday at Douglas County Historical Society

Damian Wilmot has been guiding the Bois Brule since 1989. He is one in a long line of Brule river stewards that has helped maintain the traditions that have made the river into what it is today, a blue-ribbon, wilderness bastion of the wild brook, brown and rainbow trout and their Superior-born, lake-run brethren.

Damian believes in fishing the Brule the traditional way. His program involves wooden canoes, cane rods and of course the Brule Fry, a traditional dinner of steak, potatoes, and bacon cooked riverside over a Brule Stove.

Damian’s clients not only get to fish a legendary Northwoods river, but they also get to participate in local angling traditions that go back well over a century.

This event will take place at the Douglas County Historical Society on Sunday, March 24th at 2pm (doors open at 1pm)

Event is free to DCHS Members, $2 for non-members
