Sunil, he's probably in Heaven, checking to see if you were paying attention.

To paraphrase Charlie Daniels:

"And Glazener, my buddy, above all the rest
I miss you the most and I liked you the best
And now that you're gone, I thank God I was blessed
Just to know you."

I have some flies from George too. I need to learn to fly fish so that they CAN see a pond!

I seem to recall that we got George to sign his own hat.....before he knew it was for him.

Eric, George was very proud of that hat.

George gave me all his old slides, and I had them put on CDs for him. I found this pic buried amongst the thousands of pics he had accumulated over the years. This is a Florida Keys trip with Flip Pallot. He and Lefty Kreh are the GOATS of fly fishing.

I didn't get to know George well, but we had a few lengthy conversations and I'll always appreciate the time he took to share his wisdom.

Yes. The 8/10 Mini Mag George tested was intended to go to Lefty, but he'd gotten snowed in, and TFO couldn't get the rod to him. I don't intend this to be an infomercial for TFO, but they're really good about getting new fly rods in the hands of guides and instructors for testing. I have a 5# TFO experimental fly rod that became the Esox. Not sure why they would give me one to test, but I'm not complaining.
