A neighbor of mine who is a bass angler but knows I'm a fly nut gave me an old hardcover version of this book which I just started reading.....I saw this excerpt on page 12 and I had to make it my "signature" quote. I only wish I would have had this warning some years back - as it's too late for me now.
"HOWEVER, I MUST WARN ALL BEGINNERS THAT THE DRY-FLY GAME IS AN INSIDIOUS ONE. IT CREEPS UPON YOU UNAWARES, AND UNLESS YOU FIGHT THE TENDENCY YOU WILL EVENTUALLY FISH IN NO OTHER WAY". RAY BERGMAN TROUT 1938
