"Charlie DeFeo (Gary: did you fish with him too?)"
Sadly, no, but do know a couple guys that took tying lessons from him.
I've published this before, but it's about my fav photo:
Left to right: Bob Warren (edited Fishing Atlantic Salmon and one of the planet's best fly tyers), the late Dick Jogodnik, Vin Swayze (sitting; more than 60 years guiding on the Miramichi, neighbor and friend of guys like Ted Williams), Charlie Krom (co-author, Hairwing Atlantic Salmon Flies), Pam Bates (daughter of Joe Bates and co-author of Fishing Atlantic Salmon), Keith Fulsher (Hairwing Atlantic Salmon Flies), and the lightweight of the group, me.
Photo by great guide and good friend, Renate Bullock of Bullock's Lodge, Boiestown, NB...a great place to experience atlantic salmon fishing at its finest.
