When I first made the transition from Commercial Banker to Fly Shop owner, I was having dinner with an Amish friend. He said, “Rod, why don’t you just put a worm on a hook and catch fish?’ At that moment I found out how in-articulate I was! I stuttered and tried to organize my thoughts. I never did convey the message I was trying to communicate.
After taking my fly fishng and fly tying course, one of my students handed me the following essay. I think Dr. Mittleman nailed it. He has given his kind permission for me to use his essay.
Doctor Mittleman edited my book. I thank him for his time, I envy his articulacy.
