HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO FEEL THE THRILL OF A LANDLOCKED SALMON SMASHING YOUR SMELT STREAMER AS IT SWINGS THROUGH A POOL OR TROLLS BEHIND A CLASSIC GRAND LAKER CANOE DURING A SPRING SALMON CHOP?  HOW ABOUT BEING ON A NORTH WOODS POND AT THAT LAST MAGIC HOUR OF THE DAY IN EARLY JULY, CHASING THE RISES OF ELUSIVE LARGE BROOK TROUT COMING UP TO TAKE THE GIANT HEXAGENIA MAYFLY WE CALL "GREEN DRAKES" AND HAVING ONE TAKE YOUR FLY IN A BOIL?  PERHAPS CHASING MAINE'S PITBULL SMALLMOUTH BASS WITH TRADITIONAL SPINNING GEAR?
