Joe Brooks was a world-famous outdoorsman and writer, and the man who inspired Lefty Kreh and taught his fellow native Marylander how to fly fish. Joe Brooks’ grand-nephews have produced a documentary film about him, an attempt to unravel a family mystery. You can rent and watch the film online, or arrange to use the film as a fundraiser for your organization. Joe Brooks, the master’s grand-nephew, was visiting Baltimore this week, and we met for a beer last night at the Swallow at the Hollow. He recently presented the film to the Anglers Club of New York.

I wrote a column for the Sun about Lefty Kreh on his 93rd birthday last year and, rather than talk about himself, he wanted to talk about his mentor, Joe Brooks.
