  1. Hey Bryan! You probably don't remember me but I served in Ecuador around the same time you were there. Name is Brecon Powell. I was just surfing the web for ice fishing pictures of Henry's lake and thought hey that guy looks familiar! I'm going ice fishing there this weekend. Have you been back to Ecuador? I forget your last name. You can find me on facebook. Get a hold of me next time you are in Idaho and we'll go fishing. Take care.
