, Queen Elizabeth Leaves Lasting Legacy, Including In Wyoming, Salmon Club Iceland

While in Wyoming, the queen visited Ritz Sporting Goods in downtown Sheridan where the owner, Sam Mavrakis, presented her with a fishing rod and flies to give to her husband Prince Philip.

Mavrakis and Prince Philip got to know each other in 1969 when the prince first came out to Wyoming for a five-day hunting and fishing trip.

Mavrakis tied some flies for the prince and then took them out to the ranch.

“I went out to the Wallop ranch to deliver them. Well, Prince Philip was just a regular guy. One hell of a regular guy,” Mavrakis told the Washington Post.
