80-year-old twins pull six trout from the Stanley River

Photos and story by Jim Brown

Not everyone was complaining about a bad start to the trout season. One day after the April 15 opening twin brothers from Ontario who grew up on PEI, Ron and Don Rayner, landed six large brook trout in Stanley Bridge. The 80-year-old anglers caught them at the bridge on the Rattenbury Road.

The two had been fishing since 6:30 am, using gudgeon as bait, and were still fishing at 3 pm when these photos were taken.

The brothers were joined by several other anglers who fished through a mix of rain, snow and heavy winds.

Stanley Bridge Centre renovations underway

Say goodbye to the porta-potty!

More than $80,000 worth of renovations are underway at the Stanley Bridge Centre, including two new washrooms, work on the front entrance, sewer and water connections and a new kitchen. Repairs to the roof are also planned. Adam Perry (in photo), owner of Big Dogs Construction in Freetown, along with his crew, began work on the site April 3. The renos should be done by the start of the farmer’s market season. The Stanley Bridge Memorial Society, the building’s operator, is in the midst of a major fundraising effort to help pay for the renos. Anyone who wants to contribute can contact Jim Brown at peijim@hotmail.com.
