At week's end they were still packed whisker to whisker but Brooks had hit on a gimmick that was at least giving him a little rest. While searching for additional stale bread to cast upon his fairway waters he discovered that the Wonder Bread people were handing out sample packets of bread. Brooks stocked up on samples, now gives a packet to each golfer as he tees off on the first hole and asks him to toss the bread into the pond as he plays down the fourth fairway. The bullheads are growing.

BONEFISH: FLORIDA: Keys guides report few customers but best fishing of summer with most anglers averaging six to seven a day on lures and shrimp as H. G. Brunkhurst of Jacksonville landed nine boners on spinning tackle in one afternoon and added a 9 pound permit to finish off. OVG if no hurricanes hit.
TROUT: MISSOURI: FG for rainbows at Montauk State Park and OG as Robert Conway of Route 5, Salem, Mo., took a five-pounder last week. Current River C but L and some rain needed.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: Interior lakes FF/G in spite of warm weather. Long Stellaco and Nithi River producing rainbows to 4 pounds on dries and OVG. Sea-run cutthroats hungry off Oyster River and FG.
PENNSYLVANIA: After lamenting poorest season in memory, anglers recently were given hope by an extended season but last week disastrous storm swept northern tier streams and estimated runoff at 10 days. Sobbing spy says FP indeed.
IDAHO: FG all over, especially lakes Moore-head and Honeymoon in primitive area. North Fork of Snake River above Coffee Pot Rapids excellent on wets and dries. The Moyie River FG with Adams, North Fork of Salmon, North Fork of Clearwater FG and OVG.
PACIFIC SALMON: WASHINGTON: Ponderous silvers and kings running from mouth of Quillayute River to whistler buoy five miles offshore with biggest fish of season a 58-pounder taken last week by John Haksberger of 12151 Aurora Avenue, Seattle; OG with most fish in the 20- to 50-pound class. Inside waters of Puget Sound showing hooknose silvers to 14 pounds and FF on southwest side of Whidbey Island with a trolled Cohoe fly the best bet. Seattle and Edmonds report FF for kings but OG as run moves farther into sound and good weather holds.
BRITISH COLUMBIA: Season peaking as Ken Hubbard of Spokane collared a 64-pounder in Campbell River. FF on bucktails in Nahmint River, Alberni Canal, Comox. Bates Beach, Qualicum and Parksville FG as far down as Cowichan Bay; OG generally.
