An Artful Autograph

Recently T.F.M. friend Mike Boward met with Rick Takahashi, author of Modern Midges, at Angler's Roost Fly Shop in Fort Collins, Colorado and asked if he could get his book signed.

Rick left this artful autograph on Mike's book which is certainly steps beyond a simple signature. 


If you fish and tie midges this book is a tome you must own.  It's by far the most comprehensive book on these tiny bugs in all their variations and stages of the life cycle.

Purchase your copy at your local fly shop, on the Stackpole Books website, or on Amazon.com at a significant discount.

Rick really takes time to make his signature personal. But watching him draw these drawings, they fly onto the paper! My book has a great little note on it that I am proud of also.

e.m.b...the book is worth the money. Literally 1000's of midge patterns and variations of patterns.

Juan...you should take a photo of your note. I'd like to see it.
