Larry, I spent one night with Mel in the early 90's at an afternoon club presentation, and there were 100 + people present. There were 25 rods in action, mostly with people who had never cast a line before. When it was done, he stayed and helped my spey casting while the others went to dinner and a slide show he was hosting. Based upon that event, and the success of his video series, I suspect that he touched the lives of far many more than your estimates! With that said, I agree with you. He was a Master teacher, who embraced everyone who wanted exposure to fly casting. He was REALLY GOOD at what he did, and his passion and exuberance were contagious. We're all better for it! I already miss him!
