Bill exemplified a quality that many of us in fly fishing fortunately have; a willingness to share his knowledge.

I spent several hours in the museum garage with him and was fortunate to get a full lesson on how he framed flies. It was simply amazing what this guy could do with a razor blade and some crazy glue.

Bill was definitely resistant to change, but you cant improve on perfection. I have two of his works of art in my den and I will always cherish them.

We'll miss you, Bill.
