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.
