For those that had not heard of or read any of Daves wonderful work.
I highly recommend some research about this fine gentlemen..

Dave’s artwork and writing can be seen in a variety of fly-fishing and sports magazines, including Fly Fisherman Magazine, Fly Fishing and Tying Journal, Trout Magazine, and others.
The L.L. Bean Fly Fishing Handbook, the L.L. Bean Bass Fly Fishing Handbook, Imitating and Fishing Natural Fish Foods for Lefty’s Little Library, and Trout – A Compact Guide for Fly Fishers are among his five published works.

I will continue to enjoy his beautful art and writing.
Condolence to his family.

Peace to all.
