Your pieces about Jim Range and slower flyrods were excellent. Couldn't agree more about the slower action flyrods being easier to cast...especially as an angler ages.

Had the opportunity to fish and hunt pheasants during an event at Jim Range's ranch in Montana (after his untimely death). What a great place! Met Jim in Washington , D.C., in a congresswoman's office at a meeting about habitat loss. He could say a ton in just a few words and wasn't afraid to take the congresswoman to task. The man was fearless when I came to conservation issues.

Your thoughts about him were well stated.

Thanks for the kind words my friend. Range was one of a kind. An unsung hero who left an indelible mark.
