Re: RIP Shane Stalcup
Lynn, I know my comment is late, but I had not heard this sad news (been out of the loop). Hope people don't mind this post bumping the thread back up to the top.
It's rather strange, but believe it or not I clicked over here on "Fly Tying" specifically with Shane Stalcup on my mind. I know from conversations that some high country anglers swear by his gilled nymph, and at Sportsman's we sold his highly regarded volume Mayflies: Top to Bottom. I had heard of his lofty reputation before knowing he was a fellow Coloradan. Would have enjoyed meeting him and observing his superb skills.
"Your life is but a vapor ..." Shane was exactly my age, and evidently also a resident of Broomfield. Sobering, but reality. Hmm.
