Re: "Bucket List" flies
Lee used to work for the Garcia Corporation in Teaneck NJ and so did my Tante Thelma, she was head cook in their kitchen. Every year Garcia would have a Christmas party for workers and family and part of the get together was a raffle of fishing tackle. Lee would pull the ticket stubbs out of a hat and call out the number. I'd sit there with my fingers crossed and study the numbers on mine but alas was never picked. One year Uncle Fred won a deep sea trolling rod and reel. It was a beaut!
It would be years latter when I finally figured out who Lee Wulff was. I always think of Tante Thelma and Uncle Fred when I tie a Royal Wulff.
Anybody got one of those funky "Delta" fly reels?
