to Dewey Gillespie from a very respected friend AJH)
The angler with a knowledge
of aquatic insects and the important relationship they bear to the fish he
wants to catch is better equipped with a single fly, than is the angler who
knows nothing of such things though he sports a jacket full of boxes stuffed
with crisp, unmouthed flies of every description.
It is better to fish a fly
that will catch a fish than to hunt a fish that will take a fly.
