sad to inform everyone of his passing. truly a legend in our sport and a pioneer in the invention of fly patterns and an understanding of hatches. as a fly tyer and hatch matcher i can't think of anyone who has had more of an influence on the basis of flyfishing, imitating food with hooks, feathers and fur, and of course even coining the term. personaly he has made all the difference in my career and i am forever in his debt. rest in peace.
