S e c r e t s:
For Peter’s 46th birthday he was given the gift of fly-fishing lessons at a recently opened trout lake, and was immediately hooked (sorry about that). He’s not sure if it is the fishing or the hours of solitude that he prefers, but happily it’s the inspiration for this rainbow trout model. The owners of Broad Oak Trout Lakes are Chris Lee and Charlotte Morgan, and their initials can be found near the base. Types of trout are inscribed on the lid and interior – Brook, Golden, Tiger, Rainbow, Apache and Brown. The oak leaf and acorn represent the names of the two lakes - Oak Lake and Acorn Lake. These lakes are a haven for wildlife, and even a very rare Squacco heron from Africa has recently been sighted. Numerous dragonflies can be found there and three are carved on this box figurine. Peter’s initials can be found above a small fish hiding in the reeds. The initials PTN stand for pheasant tail nymph, the name of a popular artificial fly pattern. Open the lid to see an example of a PTN.
