Thank you for the news from Donald's nephew, Hank. I have been wondering about him recently. I wish him well.

Thank you so much for posting this, and to Donald for writing it. I just found the thread. I have been reading older post as I have time. I just downloaded the book, WOW! Can't wait to read through it!

As do I, Ray. Donald is the one who turned me from a dry fly snob to a wet fly guy so many years ago. Very thankful he did. I catch a lot more fish now.

Me as well. A true gentleman.

The amount of information hidden on this forum is amazing.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

What a great contribution, so glad that this link got bumped up. I’m looking forward to pouring over it this long weekend and have forwarded the link to 2 close friends that are members but still lurking atm...

This information is really appreciated, thanks for posting it; a fantastic read. When I got here I thought I knew a little. After my first week I realized just how little...

Howdy All;

Glad to see this Epistle of Donald again, thought I'd had it saved somewhere in the bowels of this computer
but when someone asked a while back (month or 2), it was like "poof you were gone" ... Now I've got it
in 3 different
files so if one goes AWOL it should still be in the others.

Miss Donald's thoughts and input :cry: , a lot.

I've moved this post from the Fishing Cabin section to the Wet Fly Literature and History section, to make it easier for people to find Donald's wonderful contribution to this site.
