Because of Mr. Sousa, I am the fly fisherman I am today! I met him at a local fishing derby in Amherst, MA in 2006. I tied my first ever fly, a woolly bugger, under his instruction! I caught a 15 1/2 in. Rainbow trout on that fly and will never forget it! I've been hooked on fly fishing since. A fine gentleman and great instructor. Hats off Mr. Sousa! Another good book of his worth reading by the beginner fly fisher, "Learn to Fly Fish in 24 Hours"
