Salty..just saw your post...down in Chatham right now...not fishing ..I have my 91 year old mother with me to take her shopping tomorrow and close up the cottage...Will stop at a couple fly stores though... Bill C. seemed ok... arthritis is really working on his hands... He still had no problem but not sure down the road...What drove me crazy...but it was fun... is that if anyone came up to speak to him, he would stop tying and talk for a while...this went on and on..I felt like telling some of the guys to shut up and let him tye... I saw him tye one fly in one hour.... great guy and real personable....really like to shoot the breeze... but a great tyer and great "old Tyme" stories....He has a book coming out by year end or early January.
