Fly Fisher & Author Carl Richards Dead at 73
Fly fishing and fly tying expert Carl Richards has died at age 73. Mr. Richards was a life long student of entomology and was touted as one of the country's top experts on the insects that live in trout streams. He co-authored the book "Selective Trout" with Doug Swisher along with 13 other books.
"His knowledge of insects was amazing and he was the best all-around flytier who ever lived. His flies could go for over $400 to a collector."
