Throwback Thursday: Coq Pardo
"From the high bank, Teresio – my fly fishing mentor – was particularly amused by my clumsy teenage endeavors, so stubbornly determined to catch a single fish. He asked me which flies I had tried and handed me an unfamiliar wet fly tied with some shiny mottled barbs that were unfamiliar to me. He suggested I cast across the fish’s location, retrieve the fly, swinging it right over the head of the unruly Salmonidae."
