    Thomas Joseph Deschaine ? January 10, 1947 ? May 31, 2014


    On May 31, 2014 FAOL lost a good friend and a frequent contributor; Tom Deschaine.


    Tom contributed many articles on fly tying, fly tying history, especially on fly tiers from Michigan, and many recipes.


    My last communication with him was on April 17, 2014 when he sent me his last article ? The Collared Caddis. This was a pattern that he had been working on for several years and he concluded his description of the fly with these words: "Over my thirty some years of fishing and tying I have created many productive fly patterns. Some have been moderate successes and some have been better than moderate successes. Yes, some have been complete flops! But this fly ? this is the magic!"


    FAOL and the fly fishing fraternity have lost a great friend. All of us at FAOL extend our condolences to his family and many friends.
