Rich Schaaff Passes & The Awe Factor

 

SwittersB

I have read several posts tonight by friends of Rich Schaaff. He  just passed away. I didn’t have the privilege of meeting Rich in person. He is described as an exceptionally nice man. Sometime back, I found his blog and was struck, awe struck, by the beauty of his work. Several of the fly fishing photographers of today inspire awe. Their work, for me, is  often a glimpse of heaven’s gate on earth. Rich Schaaff’s work was truly inspiring in that light.  East Fork Fly At peace now. . . .

‘When Memory Is More Than Prospect’

Sir Grey

“The time must come to all of us, who live long, when memory is more than prospect. An angler, who has reached this stage and reviews the pleasure of life will be grateful and glad that he has been an angler, for he will look back on days radiant with happiness, peaks of enjoyment that are no less bright because they are lit in memory by the light of the setting sun.” Sir Edward Grey of Fallodon

A bit morose and too reflective for some. But, it does either elicit reflection, acceptance or reaffirmation that there are many more prospects before one. Either way the passage serves the purpose to reflect.
