The pleasant surprise about America’s Favorite Flies is that the 200+ persons who responded to the favorite fly question reveal all sorts of wonderfully compelling things about themselves. It’s about much more than fly-fishing.
First Lady Rosalynn Carter provides insight into her relationship to the President: “It is interesting that when Jimmy and I chose flies to send you, we picked the same.”
Sarah Grigg tells about her college professor’s lecture that included this: “Now what do you suppose this means: ‘The dinks are on the PMDs?’ This is a fine example of patois in the context of the fly-fishing community, local language that anthropologists have to crack and decode, even learn to use themselves. Any guesses?”
“The Waltons” creator/writer Earl Hamner responded that we’d given him reason to live a bit longer. He died shortly after sending his fly and comments.
Angler Tim Profota writes about sprinkling his father’s ashes on a favorite fishing spot.
Artist Dennis Winston (collections include the Museum of African American Art in Dallas) tells how a commissioned artwork caused him to love fly-fishing.
Novelist W.D. Wetherell provides humor along with his fly, the Sneaky Pete: “the nickname for everything from pool cues to cheap whiskey to sexual acts on the sly.”
Casting for Recovery Spokesperson Wanda Hair Taylor relates a fishing outing with her mother: “Mom shouted, ‘Get back into the boat before the shark gets closer!’”
