This book commemorates the NFA's 25 years of dedication "to pursue and encourage others to pursue the art and science of angling with a fly." The early history, and for that matter, the vitality of the NFA cannot be told without acknowledging its founders Dawn Holbrook, Andy Hall, and Bob Graham. Their love of fly fishing and family engendered goodwill and patience, and their sharing of skills promoted enjoyment of the sport for many people.
We all know that anglers delight in telling fishing stories - accurate, embellished, and downright prevaricated - but this is a factual record of the years 1972-1997. The chroniclers have tried to recount, with exactitude, the many events and decisions associated with the establishment of the club in 1972 and its subsequent meetings, committees, outings, and educational activities. Each contributor was assigned a period of two or three years of NFA history. The History Committee chose to maintain the individual style of each narrative which adds to its charm by revealing the ways he or she would relate the story directly to you. In addition to what you may expect to find in an historical publication, several photographs and anecdotes are included to portray the NFA's kindred spirits. Original fly patterns and recipes created by members are contained in the Appendix.
