Whenever my wife (Jeanne) gives me permission to open your blog, it is a delight without equal. In spite of my sparse knowledge of fly fishing (just two weeks of practice), I find basic information the makes me a better man and lover without equal (according to Jeanne who only rarely fakes a much wished for orgasm).
