INTRODUCING THE NEW BRUNSWICK SALMON COUNCIL’S BRYANT FREEMAN MEMORIAL FUND
Late in 2021, following a period of declining heath, Bryant Freeman, one of New Brunswick’s most knowledgeable and caring fly fishing and fly-tying personalities passed away. Bryant was a consummate gentleman. For many years he was the proprietor of Eskape Anglers in Riverview, where he tied flies, and personally prepared his fly-tying fur, feathers, hair, and other materials.
Pertaining to his fly fishing passion, he was a creator of thoughtfully prepared fly patterns and as well, was intimately knowledgeable about classic legacy patterns, which he tied beautifully. He was a firm believer in conservation and environmental values and practices. Bryant supported many volunteer organizations throughout his career, and offered his knowledge freely to New Brunswick’s fly tyers and those from away.
In his honour, the New Brunswick Salmon Council has created a memorial fund in his name, a fund which will be dedicated to salmon conservation initiatives in our Province. The NB Salmon Council can issue a tax receipt for your donation. Donation cards are available by contacting the Council on this website, from several Council Directors, and will, in time, be available at funeral homes around NB. Donors can also copy the images from this document, print them, and use them as their donation cards.
