Gary LaFontaine was one of a kind, his humor and quick wit always kept everyone laughing and on their toes.
I had the pleasure of spending time with him, Mike Lawson, and Jack Dennis on a few occasions during the early 90's when they did a yearly seminar during the Winter called 'The Traveling Fly fisherman'. It was a two day event on trout fishing tactics and the second day was spent tying with them teaching you tips and techniques on their popular flies. Classes were always limited so everyone got 1 on 1 time with each of them.
I agree Kerry, if a person ties and fishes Caddis Flies, they need to have this book, and refer to it often.
