Stan Bogdan passes on.....

I saw this on Clarks classic fly rod forum today:

The fly fishing community has lost a master reel maker and a great man. In case you've been living under a rock for the past 60 something years, Stan built incredible Salmon reels by hand. Even the screws! Notorious for a 3-4 year wait and a superb drag system, I can personally say they are well worth it. My deepest sympathy goes out to Stephen and his family.

Hang on to your Hackle

Looks there is becoming a shortage of hackle due to the latest women's fashion...Women are buying hackle and clipping it on to the hair as a latest fashion statement.  Really, its no joke...  Some shops are sold out and soon we'll be buying hackle at a salon.  Here is a link to more on the latest trend.
