T.F.M. Spotting - Howard Smiles

I have a few friends who are the kings of the grimace and Howard Levett of Windknots & Tangled Lines may top them all.  His smiles wouldn't be smiles at all to most but under that tough exterior and grimace is one of the nicest fellows I know.  


This past weekend Howard spent a day the Fly Fishing Show in Denver, Colorado and stopped in at Juan Ramirez's fly tying booth to check out The Hopper Juan's excellent ties.  Juan must have told a dirty joke or something to get Howard to bust into a full on legitimate smile.  Nice work Juan.  Please tell us all how you did it.

Howard...thanks for representing in your T.F.M. t-shirt at the show for the T.F.M. Spotting Photo Contest.  It is always appreciated.

Having never met Howard in person, something tells me he smiles more than we think. Nice shot none the less.

A heartwarmer to all of us who know him from afar. Thanks for sharing.

Well, I must say that this is my favorite picture thus far of H.L. Meeting "Cofisher" in person and getting to chat for a few hours this summer was the highlight of the River Damsel's year!! You can fish anytime...

Very nice. I know his last blog was a heart warmer.

deanwo...he does but I like to give him a hard time that all he does is grimace.

Mike...no problem. Great photo on Juan's part.

TRD...Howard is a delight, eh?
