Jack Gartside, He didn't go gently. Yet another one I hate I missed!
“I frankly don’t make much of a living, but I make a hell of a life, ’Jack Gartside invented some of his much-prized fishing flies while using a vise clasped to the steering wheel of his cab as he sat in Logan Airport’s taxi queue, waiting for a fare. Jack died the 9th of December this year, if you fly fish and haven't heard of the man you should read up. He had the guts to put it down the road against the flow, and the fortitude to remain true to his direction. AP

- Just Another Savage!
- I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
