This is a small world. I talked to Rick Pope on Friday. He said to tell you hello! Then, I talked to Lefty this morning. I guess he had never been on our site but he was going to get on and look at this thread. Seems like you've made a lot of friends in the fly fishing world. We are going to launch a new message board to replace this one in a week or so. On it will be a new section: "Ask Lefty". Members will be able to ask him questions or make comments and he will get on here and answer them. I think it will be a hit. After all, most people who get on here want to learn and who better to learn from than Lefty. He and I both are excited about it. Hope you had fun fishing this weekend.
