    Default THE WAY WE WERE - Neil - Jul 16, 2012

    THE WAY WE WERE


    Yesterday I was rearranging some of the books in my library when I happened upon an old letter, a printed list of fly patterns, and two black and white photographs. The letter was dated July 1970 and was from the Orvis ? Company. The letter was in reference to a copy of one of the black and white photographs which was an image of a young, dark haired man wearing a fly vest with a bamboo fly rod in one hand and a white meerschaum pipe in the other. Arranged in the foreground on a bed of Braken ferns were 4 respectable brown trout. The letter was an acknowledgement of my "Record Catch" and contained a round silver pin that still adorns my fishing hat and is inscribed ? Orvis Record Catch Club.

    Sometimes, the most precious thing we have are the memories. Which makes making new ones all that more important.
