Willie Nelson on Idaho Fly Fishing

Long-time Idaho Fly Fishers Association member Larry J. proudly sent a recent photo of his son Forrest J. on the cover of "Catch". He has every right to be proud, but personally I think the dad is better looking. Just kidding Forrest. I have fished with Forrest and he is a really professional fly fisher. Looks like he is fishing the Jefferson in winter to me here.

 
Also recently sent to me was a quote from a very famous C&W singer regarding his view of things that happen in the world. I thought I would share this quote (with minor liberties taken) from an Idaho fly fisher want-to-be:
 
"I think it is just terrible and disgusting how everyone has treated Lance Armstrong, especially after what he achieved, winning seven Tour de France races while on drugs.
 
When I was on drugs, I couldn't even find my (fly rod)."
 
-Willie Nelson
 
Hard takes, tight lines and may you fish more often for those huge trout of which dreams are made.
