Another One Gone
It won’t be long until that generation which, for the most part, demystified fly fishing and brought to the general angling population all wade upstream for a final time.
In the age before 24/7 cable outdoor shows, YouTube, and GoPro, these gentlemen taught us through books, articles, and, often one-in-one to fly fish from tying to casting to reading water. That age will pass forever once a few more are no longer with us.
I’ve had the honor of meeting a few of these pillars of the sport and even was privileged enough to share a piece of water with some (Lefty, unfortunately not among those I got to fish with). Each time one passes, I reflect back on how the sport has evolved as I look for their works in my bookcase. Tonight, I reread one of his.
