Play Synopsis:
A HILARIOUS, HEARTFELT JOURNEY INTO THE LIVES OF TWO MEN ON THEIR LAST FISHING TRIP TOGETHER.
The Fly Fishers Companion introduces optimistic poet Wes and testy businessman Don who have returned to the fishing lodge they built 50 years ago for one last trip to cast their lines into Cape Bretons Margaree River, which the gung-ho angler Wes calls my house of worship. It is intended to be a weekend of fly fishing and bonding  two things the two havent done in ages. While Wes is hoping to reel in a few big ones, he has other fish to fry; hes been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and wants to settle the many differences he and Don have on what could be their last outing  ever.
 
When their morning excursion is rained out, the two put a log on the fire and lay their six-decade past on the line. This odd couple met in a fishing derby in grade 5, fought and fished side by side in Europe during the Second World War and holidayed with their families in their fishing lodge. Their friendship has suffered in recent years from a marital betrayal and an unresolved battlefield decision to leave a buddy behind. Ultimately, The Fly Fishers Companion is a tale of two fishermen that offers humour and poignant insights into life.
