John Barr and The Paradise League

May 5, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Baseball players lucky enough to belong to the Pioneer Baseball League also have a chance to fly fish some of the best trout waters in the world during their tour of Montana, Utah and Wyoming. They occasionally even run into some famous fly tiers. “Curiousity got the best of Haley and Dotson, and they had to find out the man’s secret. So the two sat and watched him for a time and then approached the skilled angler to query him on what he was doing correctly and they were doing wrong. ‘We see you are using the John Barr flies,’ they said. ‘Do you like them?’ He simply answered, ‘I should. I am John Barr.'” Sonny Whittaker on eTruth.com.
