Famed flats guide Hank Brown has passed away at the age of 86. He was a legend in the sport and was always curious and exploring new waters, earning him the nickname Run Aground Brown. “Work ethic got him where he was, but being a great guide is more than just experience,” says Charlie Causey, winner of the 1986 Don Hawley Invitational Tarpon Tournament with Brown at the helm. “To be really good, you need a feel for the fish. And Hank could feel the fish in his bones.” Via Florida Keys News.
