I'm a hi-stick guy most of the time, but that one magazine article taught me a lot about presentation and fly design that I haven't forgotten.
It think half the fly fishermen in NA read that article, seriously. I know Tom was amazed by the feedback he received. Tom also covered the upstream technique in Prospecting for Trout.
