    The rest of your post was a "different tangent" as you said. That's why I didn't quote it. Apparently one of the nicest incident free youth Nations to date.

    Yes, super kid.
    Stefan and Murray are the 2 "small" ones in the WP A team.
    both super talented, Ties disgustingly beautiful flies.
    Just can't get enough fishing done in one day, never stops thinking and talking fishing after the sun has set.
    I have spent a lot of time with both of the young boys.
    I wish I had the "mentors and exposure" the kids of today have.
    if you think that these kids have done the Pascal's course, have all the knowledge of Jiri Klima, Edoardo Ferrero, Pier Luigi Cogichto etc that was passed to fellow fly fishers passed onto them.
    Plus a good number of senior fly fishers' world championships passed along as well, they are are so far ahead to compared most of us seniors where we where late in our "fishing careers"

    Nymphing, adds depth to your fly fishing.
    Nymphing, is fly fishing in another dimension

    In total agreement. Fred made the same comment.
