Because I have been a bit remiss of late with the fishing part of SwittersB & Fly Fishing, I thought to myself…’self, you should post something about how to fly fish’. So, I decided something about mending the fly line. I went to the Youtube vid’s and came upon an inspiring, pleasant video encounter with 90 year old Frank Moore. In short, the Normandy Beach WWII Vet wanted to return now to France to revisit Normandy and to most particularly fish the streams he saw some 70+ years ago.

A fund raiser commenced this past year and funds were raised to coordinate a trip for Frank and his wife to France along with a film crew looking to capture the journey. It is reportedly scheduled for release in early 2014. (Moldy Chum Update)

Frank can still unroll a nice loop. A touching journey and an inspiring gent! A different sort of mending the line resulted from tonight’s search.
