Thanks for another enjoyable column.

At 72 and an old fly fisherman, I "hunt" trout with some of the same feelings of appreciation for just being out in the stream and calling to mind my first trout caught when I was 6. Always as bracing and enlivening as a cold stream to encounter anew the joy of my "hunt" after all these decades.
