PAGES FROM A BOY'S DIARY

Robert Browning (Brownie) Trainer Jr. is 13 and back at school now after a late-summer excursion most youngsters can only dream about: a three-week hunting and fishing trip to British Columbia with Grandpa, who in Brownie's case is Robert A. Uihlein Sr., 74-year-old vice-president of Milwaukee's Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. High in the Cassiar Mountains, Brownie hunted with the men, bagged Stone sheep and caribou, netted trout, recorded such scenes as these in his pocket diary.

Wading Mink Creek, an outlet of remote Cold Fish Lake, Brownie cautiously strips in a frisky rainbow trout which had taken his fly at the head of the riffle.

Climbing above timberline on Sanctuary Ridge, Brownie (left) and Walker begin the day's stalk.
