One of the very best things about meeting and helping people become better casters and fly fishers is the receiving their reports, be they emails, phone calls and or photographs from their trips. It makes me proud (... you need a long walk if that sounds cliché).
What's neat about the above interview picture is rather than the usual fly casting instruction, I taught Bob some stuff about leaders and knots for his trip to the Seychelles. We sat in his corner office, windows overlooking Fifth Ave. and 57st. NYC, coffee table covered in spools of mono, tape measure, nippers etc... talking about knots, tying and re-tying all the while the work space just outside his carried on, interspersed with curious glances, followed by humored expressions by our activity. That and the fish was one of the largest GTs that season. Smiles all around.
