Abstract

The author tells the story of his fortuitous encounter with Guy Carroll, a member of the Penobscot Salmon Club, in 1950. The club fished the waters of Bangor Salmon Pool and they were known for sending the first fresh-run salmon, or the “presidential Salmon” to the president of the United States each year. Carroll took Hennessy out to fish with him that day, which began a long association with the two and other anglers of the club. Hennessy recounts some stories from the anglers of that time. The clubhouse is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. [illustration]
