Yeah I remember reading many of Hugh's posts on here before and they were always great. I purchased a bunch of flies from Hugh several years ago also and I must say they were like a work of art. I was almost afraid to even fish with them because I didnt want to destroy them.
"Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done." - Charles F. Orvis
