It was a very emotional moment for this old man.
It was difficult to keep from shedding a tear or two.
I was THE grandson that he chose to teach the fine art of flyfishing and I'm grateful that he did, I have wonderful memories of he and I fishing together.
So, if any of y'all get to Bryson City NC, drop in to the museum (free) and see the best examples of the bamboo flyrod makers art.
My rod is in a stand alone glass case since it's the only example they have of a E.C. Powell rod.
It contains the rod, a small book by the maker, my Grandpa's fly wallet, and two pictures of Grandpa using the rod and holding two trout taken in the mountains of northern Arizona.

Tight lines y'all.

Glad that you got to go and see the finished display.


Lord, Please help me
Keep my small mind open
and my big mouth shut.
